SANTA CLARA, United States (AFP) - Michael Phelps, the 18-time Olympic champion and 22-time medal winner who came out of retirement in April, continues his comeback next week at the Santa Clara Grand Prix.

USA Swimming announced Phelps was entered for the four-day meet that begins June 19 but did not detail which events he might swim.

The meet is a key warm-up event for the US national championships on Aug 6 to Aug 10 at Irvine, California.

That is the American qualifying meet for next year's world championships in Russia, which is the last major global swim showdown ahead of the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics.
