RIO DE JANEIRO, — Michael Phelps booked his place in the final of the men’s 200-meter butterfly final despite finishing second in his heat.

Phelps, who won his 19th Olympic gold on Sunday, was edged out by Hungary’s Tamas Kenderesi but was still the second fastest qualifier.

Before the race, Phelps was caught grimacing at South African competitor Chad le Clos, who was dancing and shadow boxing in front of him before the race.

Game face. Death stare. Angry face. Whatever you want to call it, Michael Phelps has it and he’s used it to break the internet.
