Michael Phelps Returns With A Win In Charlotte

Michael Phelps still remembers how to win.

The most decorated Olympian ever won two events Friday night in
his first meet since Beijing, showing he's moved on from the
embarrassment of being photographed using a marijuana pipe and
serving a three-month suspension.

Phelps touched first in the 200-meter freestyle at the Charlotte
UltraSwim in a time of 1 minute, 46.02 seconds. He came back less
than an hour later to win the 100 butterfly in 51.72.

In both races, Phelps easily broke meet records he set three years ago, and coach Bob Bowman proclaimed him ahead of schedule as Phelps looks ahead to the world championships this summer.
