AUSTIN, Texas – Michael Phelps won the 400-meter individual medley and Allison Schmitt swam the fastest time ever in America in the 200-meter freestyle on Saturday.

The 2008 Olympic bronze medalist set a U.S. Open and pool record when she finished the race in 1:55.04. She was just .08 short of her own American record set in Rome in 2009. It was the second fastest time in the world this year and came in a race against Olympic hopeful Missy Franklin, who was second in 1:57.91.

Phelps finished in 4:15.88, almost a second ahead of Chase Kalisz, his North Baltimore Aquatics teammate. Kalisz swam faster than Phelps in both legs of the butterfly.
