MESA, Ariz. -- Michael Phelps is 0 for 1 in his comeback to the pool. The 22-time Olympic medallist lost to Ryan Lochte in the 100-metre butterfly final at the Arena Grand Prix on Thursday night. Lochte touched first in 51.93 seconds, second-fastest in the world this year. Phelps was second in 52.13 in his first meet since retiring after the 2012 London Olympics. Phelps is the three-time Olympic champion and world record-holder in the event. His time tied for fourth-quickest in the world. Olympian Jason Dunford of Kenya finished third in 53.08. Phelps was faster in the final than he was in winning his preliminary heat with a time of 52.84. Swimming before a sellout crowd and lots of cameras, Lochte led at the turn and Phelps was second. "Down there at the turn I kind of peeked over and I saw him and almost started smiling," Lochte said about his longtime friend and rival. Phelps interjected, "Why? Because you were ahead?" An on-deck interviewer reminded Phelps his mother has said she wants to go to Rio for the 2016 Olympics, which would be his fifth. "Whatever he wants," Debbie Phelps shouted from the stands. Phelps replied, "Good mother." Phelps wasnt smiling as he walked on deck for the final, unlike in the prelims. He kept his ear buds in until he was introduced as an 18-time Olympic gold medallist . With his long hair sticking out from the back of his cap, he dived in next to Lochte, who beat him down to the first turn. Earlier Thursday, retired speedskater Apolo Anton Ohno, the most decorated U.S. Winter Olympian, tweeted good luck to Phelps, saying, "Excited to see you back brother." The three-day meet sold out every session the day his comeback was announced last week, with a capacity of 1,200 at Skyline Aquatic Center. A pair of $40 all-session tickets was being advertised online for $250. USA Swimming issued 100 media credentials -- five times more than usual. The possible future of American swimming with the same first name as Phelps was in the 100 fly heats. Michael Andrew, a 15-year-old from Lawrence, Kan., qualified for the C final in 55.23. He has broken more than 30 national age-group records and last June became the youngest U.S. male swimmer to turn pro. He was excited to meet his idol Phelps on Wednesday. "Swimming needs you!" he tweeted after they traded handshakes. "You rock!" Both of Phelps times were easily good enough to surpass the qualifying standard of 54.79 for the U.S. national championships in August. That meet will decide the team for next years world championships. "One step at a time," he said in the morning.

Miller was arrested in the Denver suburb of Centennial on Sunday and then released, Arapahoe County sheriffs detention chief Louie Perea said Wednesday. The Broncos released a two-sentence statement saying they and league officials are aware of the allegation that Miller didnt appear at a court hearing. The matter is "being handled through the legal system," the statement said. Miller wasnt available for comment Wednesday. Coming off the field after practice, he was whisked away by a member of the teams public relations staff to sign autographs and take photos with wounded members of the armed forces before being escorted by another staff member into team headquarters before reporters could ask him to stop and answer questions. Miller was supposed to appear in court on Dec. 31 on charges of careless driving, driving without a license and no proof of insurance, Arapahoe County court officials said. The original citation was issued Oct. 25. The address where Miller was arrested is the Centennial Gun Club, a shooting range. A woman who answered the phone at the club Wednesday said the owner was in a meeting and unavailable for comment. The 24-year-old linebacker is facing a four-game suspension for violating the NFLs drug-abuse policy. He has appealed and a hearing is scheduled for Thursday. Miller has said he did nothing wrong. Its not known whether Miller will skip practice Thursday to attend the hearing. The Broncos have been treating Miller aas though hell be in the starting lineup when they open the season Sept.dddddddddddd 5 against the Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens, although they have contingency plans in place in case they have to do without their best player. If Miller loses his appeal, hell have to leave the team on Aug. 30 and sit out all of September, missing games against the Ravens, Raiders and Eagles at home and Giants on the road. Miller, who was named Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2011, has 30 sacks over the last two seasons and consistently commands double teams. Broncos executive vice-president John Elway said last week at a keynote breakfast event held by the National Sports Center for the Disabled that "theres not a more talented football player on offence or defence that Ive ever seen than Von Miller," and suggested Miller and Peyton Manning were the two biggest reasons for all the Super Bowl talk in Denver this summer. Miller has had a terrific training camp despite the spectre of a suspension hanging over him, and his teammates say he exudes a confidence in the locker room — which is off-limits to the media until the season begins — that he has a strong case that will result in at least a reduction in his suspension, if not an outright dismissal of the four-game penalty altogether. Champ Bailey said on the eve of training camp that he would be shocked if Miller had to serve a four-game suspension and on Wednesday he said that he was just as confident Miller would win his appeal. "Absolutely. I dont know what else to be. My guys out there every day," Bailey said. "I feel like he does have a good case. So, lets see what happens." ' ' '
