Phelps Wins 25th Medal, 21st Gold
With two more wins in the Tuesday night swimming program, Michael Phelps continued his dominance over the Olympic field.
He has 25 total medals, which is seven more than the next closest competitor all-time. He has 21 gold medals, which is 12 more than the next closest competitor and he has 14 individual gold medals, which ties him with Larisa Latynina, a Soviet gymnast.
Phelps recorded his wins last night in the 4x200m freestyle relay and in the 200m butterfly.
Phelps still has three more events and three more opportunities to capture Olympic gold. No matter what transpires the rest of Rio, Phelps is among the greatest athletes of all-time and among the very best to ever compete in the Olympic games.
It could very possibly be the last games for Phelps, who is 31-years-old now. You should continue to watch and appreciate greatness every time he steps in the pool - the same way you should admire Usain Bolt on the track next week.
