Michael Phelps takes another step in his comeback and Ryan Lochte gets to test out his surgically repaired knee during a special meet at the University of Georgia this week.

The Bulldog Grand Slam will feature some of the top teams in the country, including Phelps' North Baltimore Aquatic Club and Lochte's SwimMAC Carolina squad based in Charlotte.

Phelps, the winningest athlete in Olympic history, will be competing for the fourth time since coming out of retirement. He is scheduled to race in the 100-meter butterfly Friday, the 100 backstroke Saturday, and the 100 freestyle Sunday.

Lochte has entered the same three events, as well as four other races. But it's doubtful he will compete in them all coming off surgery on his left knee.

The four-day event begins Thursday.
