Did NOBODY notice gorgeous Aaron Piersol?!!!! Frankly, after medal #4, it became boringly predictable! I found the thrill diminished! Gymnastics and weightlifting MUCH more fascinating IMO.

From : 1.Water drinks Michael Phelps. 2.Scientists recently discovered the cause for warmer sea temperature and melting icebergs happens every time Michael Phelps gets in the water. 3.Michael Phelps' sweat is consider a banned substance for other athletes. Too bad Michael Phelps never sweats. 4.When Michael Phelps jumps into the pool, he isn't making a splash; the water is just trying to get out of his way. 5.Once, when Michael Phelps swam the Atlantic and came across mermaids, one said to him "I thought you were just a myth!" 6.Ancient Greeks used to sacrifice 100 cows to Poseidon who would then turn around and sacrifice them to Michael Phelps. 7.Michael Phelps does not swim like dolphins; dolphins swim like Michael Phelps. 8.There is no need to save the whales, Michael Phelps has saved them all. 9.When Michael Phelps goes water skiing he doesn't use skis; or a boat. 10.Every time you see a shooting star you are really watching Michael Phelps train in space.

I do think whether he's the greatest Olympian ever will be debated. As has been brought up, some believe that people like Thorpe and Owens were greater Olympians because of what their accomplishments meant and because track, unlike swimming, is an event that is open to all humanity. Meaning that you have to at least be of a certain means to be able to be an excellent swimmer. (For example, some entire countries don't have Olympic size pools.) Anyway, all of that aside, he is an amazing athlete with a great deal of dedication to his sport. And I agree that Pop wasn't implying that Phelps swam to entertain us. It was entertaining, though! I have also heard about how his proportions (torso of someone who is 6'8", legs of someone who is 6'4") help make him an excellent swimmer, but, like with all excellent athletes, I'm sure it is a combination of natural ability and hard work that has made him as great as he is. Wow, I am rambling. Anyway, go Michael! :woohoo:

Phelps is truely the greatest Olympian!! And he is such a grounded guy. He fully admits that he could not have done it without his team mates, and they are only glad to assist. Mark Spitz on the other hand was NOT liked by his team mates, and was in more relays when he won his 7 than Phelps was winning 8. Phelps is a better athelete by his sportmanship alone!!

An unbelievable accomplishment, that's for sure (though I never doubted that he could do it). I wouldn't disagree that he's the greatest swimmer there ever was. But the greatest athlete? The greatest Olympian? Those are debatable.

The Olympics are so awesome this year! I hadn't watched them since I was a kid but admit to having Phelps fever. I also love gymnastics and equestrian.

Those boys, those bodies, I saw a guy shirtless today and thought meh, then realized I've become so spoiled watching these swimmers! Sigh. I don't usually get all wrapped up in shirtless guys but oh my, lovely, every single one of them. And oh yes, good job Michael on the incredible achievement! (Ha!)

They're making a big deal out of Phelps because he just broke a record by winning 8 golds at one Olympics. The whole of Team USA deserves credit but I don't know if they would have done it without him (the team that came second broke the original world record as well) so I think he deserves a special mention.

Oh yeah... and I was also happy that Ryan Lochte won the gold as well. He deserve it.

P.S. All the swimmers were amazing I was so happy for Dara Torrez she's 41 and she kicked butt. I hope when I'm her age I have as much moxy and gumption as she does.

He's so amazing I literally want to have his babies. But seriously since Athens you could tell he was destined to be an awesome swimmer. You could see his family beaming with pride.
