Michael Phelps Wins 23rd Gold Medal During His Last Ever Olympic Swim!

Michael Phelps just won a record breaking 23rd Olympic gold medal at the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics!

The 31-year-old swimmer competed with the U.S. team – which included Ryan Murphy, Cody Miller, and Nathan Adrian – during the 4×100-meter medley relay on Saturday night (August 13) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Earlier that day, Michael announced that he will be retiring from professionally swimming after the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics.

After it was announced that they won, the crowds cheered on an emotional Michael as he hugged his teammates.

“I’ve had the opportunity to be on some of the greatest relays of all time,” Michael told CBS Sports. “It truly is an honor.”

While in Rio, Michael has won five gold medals and one silver, making him the most decorated Olympian in history.

Congratulations, Michael!
