Its a full house at the much-anticipated Michael Phelps press conference at the central London media center.
Access to the building near Westminster was hampered first by the women's marathon, which ran by and closed the street. Then venue officials kept journalists, TV crews and still photographers outside the conference room hall, creating something of a cattle-call atmosphere when they finally opened the doors.
And no wonder: Phelps ended his Olympic career Saturday night with something that — yawn — he's done so many times before: win a gold medal.
