Brendan Hansen capped his comeback by earning another trip to the Olympics, winning the 100-meter breaststroke at the U.S. swimming trials.
The 30-year-old Hansen rallied over the final lap for a time of 59.68 seconds, giving him a chance to make up for the disappointment of the past two Olympics. He was one of the world's top breaststrokers leading up to both Athens and Beijing, but has yet to win an individual gold. He'll get a third chance in London.
Eric Shanteau is also heading back to the Olympics. Four years ago, he made the team shortly after being diagnosed with testicular cancer.
Shanteau was fourth at the turn, but he turned on the speed heading for the wall and got second in 1 minute, 0.15 seconds.
Ryan Lochte scored another win over Michael Phelps at the U.S. Olympic swimming trials, but it was only the semifinals of the 200-meter freestyle.
Their next big showdown is Wednesday.
Lochte turned on an amazing burst of speed on the final lap Tuesday night, going stroke for stroke with Phelps before touching the wall in 1 minute, 46.25 seconds. Phelps finished in 1:47.27, setting up quite a race in the final.
Conor Dwyer, who actually led the semifinal heat through 150 meters, faded to third in 1:47.38.
Lochte beat Phelps in the 400 individual medley on the opening night of the meet, extending his domination over the 14-time Olympic gold medalist.
Dana Vollmer made up for the disappointment of missing out on the 2008 Olympic team, easily winning the 100-meter butterfly at the U.S. swimming trials.
Vollmer was more than a half-second under the world-record pace at the turn Monday night, but she faded on the return lap. Not to worry. She had built such a commanding lead that she was a full body length ahead when she touched in 56.50 seconds. Claire Donahue claimed the second spot for London in 57.57.
Natalie Coughlin missed on her first attempt to make her third Olympic team. She finished next-to-last in the eight-woman race in 58.66.
Vollmer won gold at the 2004 Athens Games after making the team as a 16-year-old. Injuries and health issues derailed her bid four years ago.
