Michael Phelps beat rival Ryan Lochte to win the 200-metre freestyle final at the US Olympic trials in Omaha as both secured their places at London 2012.
Reigning Olympic champion Phelps clocked a time of one minute 47.70 seconds, just 0.05 seconds ahead of Lochte.
Phelps and Lochte had already sealed spots in the 400-metre individual medley, with Lochte finishing ahead of his rival on Monday.
Seventeen-year-old Missy Franklin booked her maiden Olympic berth after winning the 100-metre backstroke.
However, defending Olympic champion and two-time gold medalist Natalie Coughlin failed to qualify.
