Mesa (United States) (AFP) - Michael Phelps returns to competition on Thursday for the first time since 2012, and the swimming superstar doesn't know just what to expect or where his comeback will take him. "I am looking forward to wherever this road takes me, and I guess the journey will start tomorrow," a relaxed Phelps said Wednesday as he looked ahead to racing in the 100m butterfly at the Mesa Grand Prix swim meet on Thursday. Phelps, originally entered the 100m butterfly and 100m freestyle on Thursday, said he'll swim only the 100m fly -- one of three individual events in which he still holds the world record.
