MICHAEL PHELPS, American Living Legend

"I think that everything is possible as long as you put your mind to it and you put the work and time into it. I think your mind really controls everything."
– Michael Phelps

Today, Americans have a reason to celebrate, your son made a history in all the world. An Aquaman in the making, the living dolphin, or a flipper. We are in awe, one-of-a-kind, second-to-none! Cheers!

"At the age of 23, it took Michael Phelps just five days in Beijing to surpass American track star Carl Lewis, American swimmer Mark Spitz, Soviet gymnast Larysa Latynina and Finnish runner Paavo Nurmi to become the winningest Olympian in history. "

- JL Kent, ABC News

"Phelps wins in a world record of 1:42.96 seconds, beating the rest of the field by nearly 2 seconds. He ties Mark Spitz and Carl Lewis among the winningest Olympians with his ninth career gold. “The Olympics have been around for so many years, that’s a pretty amazing accomplishment,” he says. 200 butterfly

Phelps swims into history as the winningest Olympian ever, even though a problem with his goggles causes them to fill with water. Second at the first flip, he pushes it into another gear to finish in 1:52.03, breaking his mark of 1:52.09 from the 2007 worlds. “Wow, greatest Olympian of all time,” he says. “It’s a pretty cool title.” 800 freestyle relay"

"Phelps is now one of a kind, breaking Mark Spitz’s record of seven gold medals in swimming in Munich in 1972. No other Olympian has ever won eight, or seven, in a single Games. He has 14 career gold medals, also a record.

Phelps, the tall man from Baltimore, did it with some theatrics in earlier races, including a desperate extra lunge in the 100 butterfly final Saturday, one of the great finishes in any Olympic event ever, given the stakes."
