8 for 8! History made!!!


8 was the number, 8 was what Michael Phelps needed and 8 was what Michael Phelps achieved!!! Speaking of the number 8, 8 is a lucky number in China... The Beijing Olympics were started at 8:00 o'clock on 8/8/08 and the biggest individual headliner in the Beijing Olympics now has gone, 8 for 8.

Michael Phelps has achieved the greatest feat by any individual athlete in any sport especially in the history of the Olympic games. Michael Phelps is now the sole owner of the most gold medals won in any single Olympic games in history with 8, passing Mark Spitz. Phelps has won an incredible 16 medals in his Olympic career and 14 of those medals are gold. Just unbelievable!!!

Michael Phelps swam in 8 races and won 8 gold medals with a little help of his United States swimming partners in 3 of those races while setting 7 new world record times in those races. Thank you for representing our great country of the United States of America with your awesome raw talent... Way to go Michael, job well done!

Until my next post, thanks for reading, and keep sports on your mind.
