Michael Phelps Goes For Gold
Michael Phelps continues winning at the Beijing Olympics, winning his 10th and 11th gold medals, the most ever won by any Olympian.
Although he didn’t finish first, Phelps has advanced out of the 100-meter butterfly preliminaries at the Beijing Olympics, keeping him on track to win his sixth gold medal of the games.
In five days, Phelps has already won five races and set five world records.
The 23-year-old phenom appreciates all of the support he’s received, especially from his fellow Americans. “It’s pretty cool,” Phelps said of the NBA basketball stars watching his races. “I heard them starting cheers. My mom took a picture with them.”
Phelps may become the first person to win eight gold medals at one Olympics and would then pass the legendary Mark Spitz, who won a record seven golds in 1972 in Munich.
