Michael Phelps is an extremely talented athlete, with success in every single contest he has participated so far. Yesterday, he booked his place in history. He became the most decorated Olympian of all-time, after winning a gold in 4×200 Freestyle relay and a silver in 200m Butterfly.
Overall, Phelps owns 19 Olympic medals, 15 of which are gold ones. Larisa Latynina (ex Soviet gymnast) had set a record of 18 medals back in 1964 and Phelps surpassed it. It seems like no one will top him anytime soon, though.
In this year’s Olympics he has got 1 Gold and 2 silver medals while he competes in 100m Butterfly, 200m Butterfly, 200m Individual Medley, 400m Individual Medley, 4x100m Freestyle Relay and 4x100m Medley Relay.
