Golden Boy! Phelps Wins 8th Gold Medal; Breaks Tie With Spitz It took a team to make him the grandest of Olympic champions. And one last big push from Phelps himself. Going hard right to the end of a mesmerizing nine days in Beijing, Phelps helped the Americans come from behind Sunday in a race they've never lost at the Olympics, cheering from the deck as Jason Lezak brought it home for a world record in the 400-meter medley relay. It was Phelps' history-making eighth gold medal of these games. "Everything was accomplished," he said. "I will have the medals forever."0 Comments
