American Michael Phelps shared the silver in a three-way tie in the 100-meter butterfly, making more history at the Rio Olympics.

Phelps tied with Chad le Clos and Laszlo Cseh as Joseph Schooling of Singapore pulled off the upset and won gold.

"It is a wild way to end my individual career. It is just wild," Phelps said afterwards. "When I looked around I saw (the time), then the guys came over and I was like 'Three? Three of us tied for third?'"

Phelps touched second in 51.14 in the 100 fly, earning silver in the event he’d won each of the past three Olympics.

"It is the craziest race maybe in swimming history," said fellow silver medalist Cseh. "I have never seen that before, anywhere."
