Michael Phelps definitely earned the last gold medal of his incredible Olympic career.
Team USA trailed after two legs in the 4x100 medley relay on Saturday, but Phelps put them back in front and Nathan Adrian blew away the rest of the field as the anchor in the freestyle leg to give the Americans their 30th swimming medal of the London Games. Matt Grevers and Brendan Hansen rounded out the relay squad.
Phelps was stone-faced as he walked into the pool for the final race of his career. He needed every bit of that focus to chase down Japan, which was leading the relay after two legs.
That's 22 medals, 18 of them gold for Phelps in his career. Soon he'll be stepping on the Olympic podium for the final time.
