Michael Phelps may have stolen the show with his record-setting 19th medal, but Conor Dwyer was right there alongside Phelps.

The Winnetka, Ill., native Dwyer earned a gold medal on the U.S. 4x200 relay team that finished in 6:59.7.

Ryan Lochte led off with Dwyer swimming the second leg, Ricky Berens on the third stretch and Phelps closing it out as the anchor.
