Michael Phelps Goes For Gold

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.

DO YOU THINK Michael Phelps is the greatest Olympian of all-time?

He is an amazing athlete! Congrats, Michael!

He is definitely on his way to being the greatest Olympian.

He has a girlfriend.

I met him briefly last year and have to say that he is a really, really nice guy. Incredibly gracious, not arrogant at all. He deserves the success he’s achieved – he’s worked his *ss off for it.

Michael is really the best in his categorie !!!! Go USA… greatest Olympian team. and Michael is a golden rock !!!! a true shark.
Don’t forget Australian teams women and men, Alain Bernard for France, Brent Hayden for Canada… an lots others.

i hope he is not doped

i think he is the greatest olmpian of all time :]
he is amazing in the water and just works so hard.

It’s great that he’s winning to so many medals, but it over shadows over competitors that are also good. So, i’m thinking that he’s getting played out and rated now.

He doesn’t look as emotional as other people when he wins metals anymore…it’s just like “oh it’s just another gold medal….”

I AM SO HAPPY HE IS REPRESENTING USA! HE IS THE BEST SWIMMER AND FASTES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


U.S.A. FTWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


i love him, omg!!!

Good for him, a least something to compesete the ugly face

MARY. I def. disagree. I can see y u would think that but he’s said that he either sort of cries or tears up EVERY time he wins…and you can see it too when they do close ups when he gets his medals.

Michael is an incredible athlete, he trains so hard, but with all his success he has not changed a bit, I am from the same town as Michael and though I don’t know his personally, I know one of his best friends. He said Michael is the same Michael and he can’t wait to move back to Baltimore with his mom and hang out with his friends and eat crabs.

go michael! he is awesome.

Michael Phelps has had his blood frozen because of some of the speculation that he is doped up. He did this so if in the future they come up with even more advanced tests then they have now, they can go back and test his blood. That is amazing. Also, Michael would never risks disappointing or embarrassing his mother. He would quit swimming before he would ever do that.

way to go michael! I’m sooo jealous!!! I live in Belgium and I’m ashamed by the fact that Belgium hasn’t won any medal:p

This guy is the BEST!

Love from Sweden <333

Haha.. US love themself. I have noticed that after being in US so many times and reading media.
But anyway, he is really good. I hate OS anyway.. I don’t even know if my country have won anything :b
