Michael Phelps done did it. The American Olympics swimmer cinched his eighth gold medal in Beijing yesterday, giving him a grand total of eleven such wins, which beats out Marc Spitz’s previous record of ten.
Having completed his mission, the ever humble Phelps said, “I wanted to do something nobody ever did.” He also said he wanted to hug his mom. Awww.
Meanwhile, did anyone see the American basketball team whoop Spain 119-82 yesterday? Could they be better than the Dream Team?
