Seventeen races, eight gold medals. This man can truly fly!
Let's hear it for Michael Phelps - the greatest Olympian of all time. He made it look easy - breezing through a schedule most human beings would find crippling. Yet he did it - he did it! Not alone - but it was his drive and passion that fueled all eight wins. Tonight we all have something amazing to be proud of. Congratulations Michael. You are indeed the very best.
