CHARLOTTE, North Carolina (AP) -- What Michael Phelps has in mind for his comeback is becoming a bit more apparent.

In the short term, there will be a month of intense training in the high altitude of Colorado, followed by a couple of minor meetings in California and Georgia, before he competes in the U.S. championships and Pan Pacific Championships.

Looking farther down the road, it's becoming clear that Phelps hopes to swim in all three relays at the 2016 Olympics, and perhaps two individual events. The 100-meter butterfly would certainly be part of the mix, but it's still up in the air what else he might swim. The 200 individual medley is a possibility. So is the 200 freestyle.
