Two more down, three to go!!!


If I didn't know better myself I'd truly have to say that Michael Phelps has gills and a few fish fins to boot. Michael swims like a fish if you haven't noticed... He is so amazing in water that he makes anyone swimming against him in these Beijing Olympics look like they don't even belong there. He's that much better than the rest of the Olympic swimmers.

To top that off, yesterday in the 200 meter butterfly he raced Michael won that race as well setting a new world record and in doing so basically won the race with his eyes closed the whole time. Can you believe that??? When Michael jump into the pool at the beginning of that race his goggles started filling up with water and by the middle of the race he said he couldn't see anything. Wow, what an amazing feat he displayed!

So now Michael Phelps is in a league of his own leaving Mark Spitz and Carl Lewis in the dust with the most total gold medals by any single athlete in the Olympic games and with 3 more races to have a chance to collect more golds and complete his fabulous run at his record setting 8 golds in these Beijing Olympics.

This is so fun to watch and enjoy, so don't miss it!

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