Michael Phelps stands alone in History!

Phelps wins 4th & 5th Gold Medals in Beijing!

If you watched Michael Phelps in the 200 meter butterfly you watched RARE HISTORY. Phelps went into the event being tied with the greatest Olympians having nine gold medals. He ended the event winning his tenth career gold medal and his fifth in Beijing. There wasn’t much doubt however he would do this; as this is Phelps signature event. He hasn’t lost this event in six years, more over he had already broken this world record six times and he did it once more tonight. This now makes his fifth world record set in Beijing and twenty fifth in his career. But wait there’s more…

Before the night ended Phelps would do one more event; the 4×200. Phelps and company started off well and on the last turn of his two hundred meter part Phelps began crushing the world record for this event. The lead he gave his team was incredible. They were so far ahead that the world record line couldn’t keep up with them. It was crazy, with a Capital C Baby! By the time Phelps and Company had finished this event they had pulverized the world record. They are the first team in the history of the Olympics to do this event under seven minutes.

With this event added to his first this added to Phelps tally. This gives him his eleventh career gold medal, his sixth in Beijing, and made the 26th world record he has broken. Now Phelps moves one step closer to making history once more. He is only two gold medals away from tying Mark Spitz for the most gold medals won at one Olympics. Chances are very good and high that not only will he tie Spitz but complete a perfect Olympics. That would be a new record as well, the first time anyone competed in all their events and won gold in each one. Phelps is only three medals away from doing this. I’ve said it several times before, watch this “kid” he’s going to make History.

He’s no where even close to being done, the Great White (shark) has emerged and he’s very; very hungry!
