He won 8 gold medals in one Olympics and now has 14 gold medals total.  He has 16 total medals.

Phelps has the most gold medals in history, he is 3 medals away from having the most total medals, and he’s still only 23 years old.  His sport is dominated by young swimmers, but if anyone can compete at a later age, he could be the one.  At this rate, he will shatter all medal records and there will be absolutely no question about his greatness as an Olympic athlete.

His performances during this summer’s Olympics made for spine tingling drama.  Let’s hope we see him again in 4 years returning to the stage of his dominance!
