Tyler Clary's grandparents in Yucaipa are glued to their TV set to watch the swimmer -- who rained in Fullerton -- attempt to win a gold medal in London. Craig Fiegener reports for the NBC4 News at 4 p.m. on July 30, 2012.
Riverside’s Tyler Clary finished fifth in the 200m butterfly Tuesday with a time of 1:55:06.
South African Chad Le Clos grabbed gold, just 0.05 seconds ahead of Michael Phelps, who tied the record for the most Olympic medals with a second place finish. Phelps later broke the record in a relay event in which the men's team won gold.
Takeshi Matsuda of Japan captured bronze.
Next up for Clary is the men’s 200m backstroke, which starts Wednesday. It will be his last chance to capture an Olympic medal.
Ryan Lochte is the only other American racing in that event.
