Phelps is Aquaman: World Records, Gold Medals, and Olympic Glory

Currently, the US as a country has nine gold medals in the 2008 Summer Olympics. Five of those nine belong to US Golden Boy Michael Phelps. With winning his 10th and 11th Olympics medals this evening, Phelps now becomes the winningest Olympian EVER. And did I mention that he is a pefect 5 for 5 in setting world records in each of his events in Beijing? Sure looks like he’s becoming everything he was destined to be. He does Mark Spitz, Carl Lewis, and the rest of the country proud.

Wednesday’s performance included winning the 200-meter butterfly in the morning and following it up by swimming the lead-off leg of the US 800-meter freestyle relay team that set the world record time of 6 minutes, 58.56 seconds.

Congratulations Michael. You’ve now successfully swam into the collective heart of the American public.
