How far do you think he'll make it?
Michael Phelps has now won two gold medals. These two events were his two most challenging of the eight he's entered. If he gets either two or three more(can't recall which) he'll be the most successful Olympic champion ever. If he wins gold in all six he'll have passed Spitz for most gold in one Olympics.
The 4x100 Relay last night was one of the most exciting things I've seen.

Too many medals in swimming. It's like giving the marathon runners a medal for being in the lead every mile marker.
He's the best short distance freestyle male swimmer competing in the Olympics. In swimming, he gets to demonstrate this again and again and again and again. Let's try for a little perspective here.

Well, What ya gotta say?
He's going for #6 in 10 minutes.

What about that! He must have a jet drive! Did you see the way he pulled away from the pack?

Yeah Chad! I'll stick with my eight bet. That boy's a rocket in the water.
I put in my 8 bet prior to that swim.

I don't think I can run that fast. Daayumm!

Rocket? Try flippers! Size 14 feet!...
He does move like Flipper when he is in the water.
