RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) —It’s the final day of swimming at the Rio Olympics and four gold medals are up for grabs.

Saturday could be Michael Phelps’s last time in an Olympic competition. While the American team is not yet set, he could be swimming in the men’s 4×100 meter medley relay final. On Friday, he was upset in the 100 fly, taking the silver behind Joseph Schooling of Singapore.

Simone Manuel, who became the first African-American woman to win a gold medal when she set an American and Olympic record in the 100 free on Thursday, is in the women’s 50 free finals Saturday. She is also likely to compete in the women’s 4×100 medley relay.

Medals also will be awarded in the men’s 1500 meter freestyle but defending champion Sun Yang of China failed to qualify.
