Michael Phelps broke his own world record in the 400-meter individual medley in the time of 4:03.84.

All he needs now is two more gold medals to tie the record of Mark Spitz.

“I’m pretty happy. That was a pretty emotional race,” Phelps said. “I knew it was going to be a tough race all the way through.”

The 400-meter individual medley was supposed to be one of his toughest tasks at these summer games.

Well if it was, he should have no problem tying and beating Mark Spitz’s record of 9 gold medals.
