King of the POOL.

17th August 2008 was the day that saw Michael Phelps establish himself as the king of Olympics with his 8th gold medal in the 4*100 metre Medley relay. The American quartet - completed by Aaron Peirsol, Brendan Hansen and Jason Lezak - touched the wall in three minutes 29.34 seconds, 1.34 seconds under the world record and 0.70 secs ahead of Australia with Japan in third.
Michael's two Gold medals were in the team events. One of his events, the 100m butterfly was a close call with Phelps finishing just one hundredth of a second behind Serbian Milorad Cavic who led for almost the whole race. Nonetheless you can't take credit away from this man.
