MICHAEL PHELPS HAS DONE IT!!!
ONE (1) OLYMPIC RECORD!
SEVEN (7) WORLD RECORDS!!
EIGHT (8) GOLD MEDALS!!!
he has become one heck of an Olympic champion!
thought i couldn't catch his last swim, 4 x 100 medley relay, on Sunday, i had it all down on tape.
it was a great win but it still wasn't as fantastic as his 7th win on Saturday, in which he out-touched Milorad Cavic by 0.01sec.
an utterly unbelievable win. any slower and the 8-gold dream would have been out of his hands.
but there you have it.
he won Mark Spitz's 7-gold record.
he had 7 new world records.
his name, MICHAEL PHELPS, will go down in history.
last Saturday was also the day in which the Men's 100m run had a new world record by Usain Blot from Jamaica.
another unbelievable win, where he run a record 9.69sec!
i don't think i can even do 50m in that time, much less 100m!
now it's a matter of whether Blot will win the 200m on Wednesday night, in which he is the current world champion.
back-to-back golds in the sprints?
he will try and accomplish it.
and maybe, just maybe, break Michael Johnson's 12-yr old record. (!!)
anyway, i've spent all of my last weekend's nights watching the athletics.
i will still continue to do so for the rest of the remaining Olympic days.
i'm so glad most of the track finals are in the evening rounds.
