Michael Phelps was back in familiar waters and on top of the winner’s podium in his comeback to competitive swimming at the U.S. Grand Prix in Charlotte on Friday.

Competing for just the second time since retiring after the 2012 London Olympics, Phelps ticked off all the important boxes he needed to.

In the morning heats, he tested his stamina by entering two lung-sapping events – the 200 metres freestyle and 100m butterfly – then in the evening finals, he tested his speed by winning the 100m butterfly final.
