The 2012 Olympics began in London on Friday and billions are watching. Today Olympic fans got a surprise when American, Ryan Lochte, defeated U.S. swimming champ and eight time gold medalist, Michael Phelps.
The highly anticipated men’s 400-meter individual medley was exciting to watch, but it was sad to see our “Golden Boy” falter. Phelps came in fourth place and his rival Lochte ran away with the gold.
Many wondered if Phelps should have retired after reaching the pinnacle of his career, earning 8 Gold medals during his historic wins in Olympic swimming competitions. It seems that no one is ever satisfied and they always want more…sometimes it is just smart to end a good run on top.
What do you think? Should Michael Phelps have retired and enjoyed his special moment? I guess nothing lasts forever…
On another note; was the opening ceremony extremely boring this time around or did I just need some sleep?
