For Michael Phelps, the 5th Olympics may mean the most yet

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Michael Phelps surged to the wall, and then whipped around to spot his time.

That number wasn't really important.

The only thing that mattered was No. 5.

Phelps became the first male swimmer to qualify for five Olympics with a victory in the 200-meter butterfly at the U.S. swimming trials Wednesday night, another huge milestone in the water but even more significant given what's happened away from the pool.

Youthful Spirit Athletics

In 'year of the youth,' chances for US track newcomers, too

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — Possible new slogan for the U.S. Olympic track team: Higher, Faster, Younger.

There could be a youth movement underway on the track over the next two weeks.

A group of up-and-comers are angling for spots on America's Olympic track team, hoping to duplicate the success a new crop of swimmers is making at that sport's trials in Omaha, Nebraska.
