Olympics 2012: Clary wins 200m backstroke gold

August 3, 2012

London, Aug 03 (ANI): Tyler Clary vindicated his decision to take on the world's toughest swimmers when he upset his American team mate Ryan Lochte to win the men's 200 metres backstroke gold medal at the London Olympics. Lochte went into the race as the overwhelming favourite and led at all the turns but faded on the last lap as Clary made his move. Speaking in a news conference shortly after winning his first gold medal Clary said that he was proud of how he battled for the gold after missing out on a trip to Beijing in 2008.
