McGill finishes in seventh in 100-meter butterfly
LONDON - Champaign's Tyler McGill finished seventh out of eight swimmers, as Michael Phelps won another gold medal, in the finals of the 100-meter butterfly in the London Olympics on Friday.
McGill swam in 51.88 seconds, 0.67 seconds behind Phelps' time of 51.21.
Second place was a tie between Chad leClos of South Africa and Evgeny Korotyshkin of Russia at 51.44 seconds.
McGill still could win a medal if the heavily favored U.S. 400-meter medley relay wins. He swam a leg of the relay earlier Friday and will be replaced by Phelps for the final.
