    Congrats 8 times over to Michael Phelps on his 8th Gold medal. He must be so relieved and so happy. What an amazing athlete!

    Praises to the whole Relay Teams especially Jason Lezak. I do not underestimate what Spitz did either. Babe Ruth's record was broken but his stature remains the same.

    Phelps did 5 singles gold. How many did Spitz do?

    Mark Spitz won 4 individual gold medals & 3 relay golds in the '72 Olympics & set World records in all 7.

    And Spitz was interviewed in an article on the Yahoo coverage last week and came across very sour grapes over the whole Phelps situation and that he coulda won 8 too, if only...

    I am so happy for Michael, it seems as a child he was told he couldn't do much.

    Joe, I have watched many of the games but the thread is about Michael.

    I wrote a response and there is a good article from Debbie Phelps and a photo

    It's amazing to see something like this. Phelps swam unbelievably the whole time and it's awesome to see him get that record haul of golds.

    My fave was the relay where Lezak swam down the French guy.

    Swimming is over , and the Olympics got boring. lol

    I have always believed that the stars line up for certain people at the Olympics. Wow.

    Very few things in the world can make me cry; that just did.
