In 2008, I watched the Olympics thoroughly and meticulously. What did I witness? The greatest feat in sports history. Eight gold medals out of eight chances for Michael Phelps at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. It was perfection. It was greatness. That relay where Lezak kept Phelps' hopes alive! And Phelps beating Cavic by one millionth of a second? Simply amazing. Eight gold medals. Unprecedented. Of course, there was Sydney, his first, and Athens in 2004, where he strove for eight and managed six golds and two bronze.
Today, Michael Phelps got his 19th gold and his 2nd silver. That, and the silver he got earlier in London, put him as the greatest Olympian of all time. After 2008, I loved him, he was one of my favorites and he still is. No one is more deserving of this. The greatest swimmer ever. The greatest Olympian ever. One of the greatest athletes ever. Huge props, Phelps.
