RIO DE JANEIRO -- Michael Phelps continues to be one of the most talked about athletes at the Olympics.

He's trending Tuesday morning -- not for his most recent performance, but for his game face.

While waiting to take on long-time rival Chad Le Clos of South Africa in the 200-meter butterfly, Phelps goes all Palpatine staring as his foe gets ready to race.

The Internet is having some fun with "The Phelps Death Stare."

Clearly, Phelps' pre-race prep paid off. He got second place in the event, which advanced him to Tuesday's finals.
