Fire alarm awakens Michael Phelps from nap

OMAHA, Neb. — Michael Phelps got a rude awakening on the first day of the U.S. Olympic swimming trials.

The 14-time Olympic gold medalist was back in his hotel room on Monday sleeping after the morning preliminaries in which he finished second behind Ryan Lochte in the 400-meter individual medley.

"Well I have always had a prob with waking up from naps...But not possible to sleep through that fire alarm..." Phelps tweeted.

Phelps and Lochte returned to the pool for the evening final that was to award the first two berths on the U.S. team for the London Games. (AP)
