Michael Phelps now has more Olympic medals than anyone in history. But wait…after winning 19 total medals he still has more events to go. The U.S. swimming hero broke the Olympic medals record as he smashed the competition with a win in 4 x 200 meter freestyle relay today.
All I can say is…Phelps is the man! This historic event has the world cheering….GO U.S.A.! O.k that may be pushing it.
Who did he beat? Phelps moved ahead of long-time record holder, Soviet gymnast Larisa Latynina, who was the reigning champ during 1956, 1960 and 1964 Olympics.
