MANCHESTER, England (AP) -- Michael Phelps helped his American team trounce a European all-star team in the Duel in the Pool.
In the last major meet before the Jan. 1 ban on high-tech polyurethane suits, the U.S. team won by a 185-78 margin Saturday.
Phelps has reverted to wearing an old-style textile swimsuit. The Olympic great anchored the U.S. to victory in the 4x100-meter freestyle in a world-record time, but didn't fare well in the individual races.
He was second in the 200 butterfly, beaten by a body length by Michael Rock of Britain, and third in the 200 freestyle.
Two world records were set by American women. Julia Smit won the 200 individual medley and Rebecca Soni took the 100 breaststroke.
