Congratulations to Michael Phelps who won his first gold medal … 7 more to go !!! Yes Michael Phelps would need 8 gold medals to be the next Spitz. Spitz, the former IU swimmer and Olympic legend, had seven gold medals in the 1972 Games in Munich. These Games began on 8-8-8 and eight is a special number in the Chinese culture, so 8 gold medals for Michael !!? To be continued …

Besides winning the gold medal, Michael Phelps set a new world record! Minutes before the start of the 400-meter individual medley final, something unusual happened. "I started getting these chills up my body," Phelps said. "Right then, I knew I was starting to get more and more excited." Keep getting excited Michael … it works!
