Phillips Record

Why Michael Phillips, is even considering the goat?

Until recent years the Olympics no one knew who era. The fact that once dominated the swimming they do the greatest athlete of all time. hell if this is the case, then Kobe should be the best for your registration 81 points or wilt 100.

First, Michael Phelps is. He is not the greatest athlete of all time – he's the best swimmer of all time mean. What "Until recent years the Olympics no one knew who he was?" "He dominated the swimming a time." Are you kidding? Maybe you had not heard of him before he won his 8 gold medals in Beijing, but most everyone had more. In age 15, competed in the 2000 Olympics in Sydney, becoming the youngest American male swimmer at the Olympics in 68 years. If he did not win a medal, it was the final and finished fifth in the 200 meter butterfly. Proceeded to make a name for himself in swimming shortly thereafter. Five months after the Sydney Olympics, Phelps broke the world record in the 200 m butterfly to become, at 15 years and 9 months, the youngest man never to set a world record swim. Hopefully, you are aware that also won gold medals six (and two bronze) in the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens. Only Soviet gymnast Larissa Latynina has more total career Olympic medals with 18 (nine gold), compared to Phelps 16 (14 gold). And plans to compete in London in 2012. Here is a PARTIAL list of some of their awards: World Swimmer of the Year: 2003, 2004, 2006, 2007, 2008 American swimmer of the Year: 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2006, 2007, Man 2008 Golden Goggles performance Year: 2004, 2006, 2007, 2008 Performance Eyewear Golden Link Year: 2006, 2007, 2008 Golden Goggles Male Athlete of the Year: 2004, 2007, 2008 USOC Sportswoman of the Year: 2004, 2008 Member of U.S. Olympic Team: 2000, 2004, 2008 Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year: 2008 contains the record for most Olympic gold medals: 14 Holds the record for most Olympic gold medals in individual events: 9 maintains the record for most Olympic gold medals in individual games: 8 (Beijing 2008) Not bad for a "one time" boy.
