Olympics 2012: On the Scene at the Games in London (PHOTOS)

Olympics 2012: The Scene in London

USA's Michael Phelps was one of many athletes who was up bright and early on Monday to partake in Day 4 of the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.

The 14-time Olympic champ, 27, competed in the qualifying round of the 200-meter butterfly earlier in the day, an event in which he is the two-time defending champion.

Surprisingly -- or maybe not, based on how his Games have unfolded so far -- Phelps finished third in his heat, and fifth overall, to land a spot in Monday night's semifinals.

If Phelps -- who on Sunday won his 17th Olympic medal, a Silver, in the 400-meter freestyle relay -- were to advance to the finals, he'd have a chance to tie former Soviet gymnast and 18-time medalist Larisa Latynina as the most decorated Olympian in history.

Of course, Phelps' appearance was just a small part of Monday's Games, which will soon see Team USA take on the world in the Men's gymnastics finals, at 11:30AM ET.

    I still can't get over how they robbed this girl of her rightful win. It's a travesty.

    I have observed that of all types of insurance, medical health insurance is the most debatable because of the clash between the insurance company's necessity to remain profitable and the customer's need to have insurance coverage. Insurance companies' revenue on overall health plans are extremely low, as a result some businesses struggle to make money. Thanks for the ideas you discuss through this site.
