Et voila! Olympic history has just been written this morning in Beijing in the 4×100 medley. 23 year old Michael Phelps surpassed Mark Spitz's epic 1972 feat of seven golds. He set or was part of seven world records. And, with 14, he has won five more golds than any other Olympian in history.
It would be great if Michael can inspire young people to join the swimming family … Not very fair-play Spitz declared that it is unfair to compare Phelps with him since in 1972 Spitz won 100% of his races when Michael Phelps who did 17 races just won half of it … come on Spitz time to let go …
