Michael Phelps Wins 8th Gold Medal

EIGHT FOR EIGHT!

Michael Phelps just made history today in the Water Cube at the Beijing Olympics! The 23-year-old swimming champion is the only person ever to win eight gold medals at a single Olympics (surpassing Mark Spitz).

Moments ago, with the help of his team mates in the 4×100 meter medley relay, Phelps secured his eighth medal. Team USA won in a world record time of 3 minutes 29.34 seconds. Australia finished in 3:30.04 and Japan took bronze in 3:31.18.

Congratulations to Phelps and the United States men’s swim team!
