Phelps pips rival Cavic in heats

Michael Phelps pips Serbian rival Milorad Cavic to qualify second fastest for the 100m butterfly final.

The duo' s rivalry extends back to the Beijing games where it looked like Cavic was going to beat Phelps, but the American famously took gold in a fingernail finish.

A quick finish from Phelps propels him from last place to first in the heats 50m of the men's 100m butterfly.

Their rivalry will resume once again in Friday night's final.
