In the closest and most controversial of Phelps’ races, Phelps edged out Serbian Milorad Cavic. Cavic had a commanding lead after 50 meters, when Phelps started to chase him down. Phelps ended up out touching him by the slimmest of margins, 0.01 seconds. His 50.58 second swim set an Olympic record.
