He Spitz All Over Him!

Michael Phelps won his 8th gold medal at the Beijing tonight, passing Mark Spitz’s record of 7 gold medals in  one Olympics. It was a team effort in the 4×100 medley relay with Jason Lezak holding off the Australians in the last 100 meters of the race.

“With so many people saying it couldn’t be done, all it took was a little imagination,” said Phelps. “It’s been such an unbelievable roller coaster. It’s been such an unbelievable ride. All I want to do is go see my mom.”

Now there is one question left remaining: Is Michael Phelps the best Olympian in history?

I sure think he is.

  1. Michael Phelps is, without a doubt, the face of his sport just like Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan, Wayne Gretzky, Muhammad Ali, Brett Favre, Roger Federer and Babe Ruth. However, for all that he accomplished in this years Olympic games, I still don’t think he ranks in the top 5 of all-time Olympians.

    Here is my TOP 5 All-Time Olympians:
