Wow - the USA swimmer just broke the world record in his second swim out of 17
There's still a couple of relays, where it's not totally in his hands. We saw in the first one how close he came to losing.I have no doubts that he'll get 8 golds.
Pfft, he was going in a straight line, what does he really need to see for anyway?He won his 200m butterfly and for the final 100m his goggles were filled with water
This guy is just awesome, in the true sense of the world. Awe inspiriing.
Exactly my thoughts as wellDespite all the hype, I think Michael Phelps is more likeable and less arrogant than Ian Thorpe was in his final years of swimming.
Thorpe has been trying to play down all the hype and big talk about 8 golds.
I almost wish Phelps would do it just to show Ian Thorpe.
Phelps is amazing. If he was a country, he'd be 4th in the medal tables!
He eats 12,000 calories of food per day: His diet is here: http://www.guardian.co.uk/sport/2008/aug/14/michaelphelps.swimming1
Lots more fat than I expected.
