Phelps loses again at Charlotte, Too Many Bonger's In The Offseason?

Certainly he can't win them all, especially after taking the past 4 months off to see how fast he could screw up a great thing

Phelps loses again at Charlotte: "CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Two days, two losses for Michael Phelps.

Phelps was beaten again at the Charlotte UltraSwim, losing to French star Frederick Bousquet in the 100-meter freestyle Sunday night.

Phelps touched nearly a full second behind Bousquet, world-record holder in the 50 free, after losing his first final in nearly a year the previous night. Aaron Peirsol beat Phelps in the 200 backstroke."
One thing he had down pat were all the excuses as to how he went from Gold Medal Mania to sloppy seconds in a few short months

......Bousquet went out strong, ensuring he had a big enough lead to hold off Phelps at the end—even as the winningest Olympian ever experimented with a new straight-arm stroke that is supposed to provide more speed.

The Frenchman touched in 48.22 seconds, while Phelps never really had a chance and finished second in 49.04.

"The biggest thing that killed me were my turns and my finishes," said Phelps, who holds the American record in the 100 free at 47.51. "I'm not disappointed with that time, but the finish was awful. There's small things I need to work on. But overall, it was a good meet."

Yea sure...coming in second two races in a row after going unbeaten at the Olympics a few short months ago is nothing to worry about, nothing a few doob's and a few nights out at the clubs with the brat packer's can't smooth over..

From this video he sounds like he's quite pleased with losing ....when you can understand WTF he's saying that is...
