Record-breaking American swimmer Michael Phelps, is to get back into the water, coming out of retirement and will compete again at a meeting in Arizona on 24-26 April.  Phelps, the most successful Olympian in history, won 22 Olympic medals during his career, including 18 gold medals at the last three Summer Games.

Britain’s Michael Jamieson, who recently revealed he had experienced a heart problem while training which had required doctors to restart his heart, showed no ill-effects as he won silver in the 200m breaststroke at the European Short-Course Championships in Denmark.  The Olympic silver medallist, 25, also broke his British record finishing in 2:01.
