Phelps Wins Gold In Final Individual Event

Despite likely being able to qualify for the Summer Olympics again in 2016, Michael Phelps has been steadfast in saying that this Olympics will be his last. If that’s the case, he wrapped up his individual Olympic career in as fitting a way as possible: by winning gold.

Phelps needed to mount a back stretch comeback, but at the end of the 100 meter butterfly Michael Phelps was once again the first to finish and headed to the podium to receive his record 17th gold medal. Phelps touched in 51.21, edging out South African Chas le Clos, who finished at 51.44. The win extended Phelps’ world record medal total to 21, with one final team relay left to add to his total.

After the win Phelps exclaimed his relief saying: “I’m just happy that the last one was a win. That’s all I really wanted coming into the night.”

Phelps and his teammates are heavy favorites to win Saturday night’s 4×100 medley, an event which no tape delay could ruin.
