    LOS ANGELES: Michael Phelps was pipped by training partner Chase Kalisz Friday in the 200m butterfly at the Minneapolis Pro Swim meeting — the second straight race that the Olympic superstar failed to top the podium. Phelps led at the 100m mark with a split of 56.04sec, but Kalisz powered past him to win in 1:58.07 — well outside the world-leading 1:52.94 Phelps clocked in winning the US title in San Antonio in August. Phelps, aiming to add to his record 18 Olympic gold medals at the 2016 Rio Games, was second in 1:58.38. Grant Shoults was third in 2:00.41.
