Michael Phelps, the most successful Olympian of all time, has made the US team for the Pan Pacific Championships in Australia from 21-24 August.

The 29-year-old, who won 22 medals at the Games from 2004 to 2012, announced in April that he was making a comeback.

He finished in the top three of the 100m butterfly and 200m individual medley at the US trials to qualify.

"I got in the water and I was actually able to put together a full race," he said after the 200m medley.
