Michael Phelps: One More Gold To Rule Them All!
Swim-king Michael Phelps wins his 7th gold model of the 2008 Olympics games with a win in the 100-meter butterfly on Friday in Beijing, China.
Although Phelps, 23, has been used to winning by substantial margins, he proved he could win the tough race by eclipsing Milorad Cavic of Serbia by 0.01 seconds! Phelps finished the race in 50.58 seconds and for the first time, didn’t set a new world record.
American Ian Crocker, who is the current world record-holder, finished off the medal stand in fourth place.
Phelps now only needs a gold in his final 4×100 medley relay on Saturday night to win a record eight gold medals in one Olympics. He will surpass Mark Spitz, who initially set the record at 7 gold medals.
CONGRATS MICHAEL PHELPS! GOOD LUCK TOMORROW!
