mainMr. Olympia!  Michael Phelps not only brought home the gold for America, but also pride for our country.  Phelps was long considered not only one of the best athletes, but the best Olympian of all time.  This year he made it official when he broke the official record for most medals at NINETEEN! Getting invited to the Olympics is an accomplishment, but to win more medals than we have fingers is in a whole other stratosphere.   In true style, the nineteenth medal was a gold and all he had to do was not disqualify.  All he had to do was take four laps at his own pace and let his fans cheer for him the entire time.  While Phelps vows he is done in the pool, he has cemented his piece in history.  It was one of the greatest moments to be American!
