Michael Phelps...Amazing

The guy is just one that simply puts you in awe. He just game us all something to cheer about whether you're from the United States or not. Getting 8 gold medals in one Olympics is just mind boggling.
There are athletes who will never qualify to be an Olympian. There are Olympians who will never win a medal. There are Olympian medal winners who has never won a gold medal. There are countries who have never won a gold medal. There are Olympic champions. There are Olympic champions who have won multi gold medals..But there is one Olympic champion who has won 14 total gold medals. There is only one Olympic champion who has won 8 gold medals in the same Olympics.

That right there, just puts everything in perspective on how good this guy is and what he has achieved. One that will definitely stand the test of time.

There has always been a healthy 'rivalry' between the Australian and American Olympic swim teams but we Aussies sure know a champ when we see one - what this guy has achieved is extraordinary.
It makes you wonder just how on earth his record will be equalled or broken - maybe that future legend has been watching Phelps race this past couple of weeks (?)
Great topics for discussion here - added you to my blogroll too!
