Move over McKayla Maroney, there's a new "not impressed" face of the Olympic Games, reports CNN.

Cameras caught Michael Phelps scowling as he waited in the "ready room" for the 200m butterfly semifinal. In front of him, South African gold medalist Chad Le Clos was seen doing what can best be described as a shadow boxing-style dance routine.The two rivals seem to have decidedly different pre-race rituals and the Internet needed no help in taking the photo and running with it.

Their rivalry dates back to the London Olympics of 2012 when Phelps, the greatest Olympian of all time, narrowly missed out on gold in the 200m butterfly after a sensational race by Chad le Clos of South Africa.

It's something that clearly still rankles with Phelps causing a storm on Twitter as amused watchers posted tweets and memes under the hashtag Phelps Face (#phelpsface). Scroll down to see some of the best ones.
