AAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!!!!! last night, Phelps pwned that race!!! that was so close! he went from 4th to 2nd in the last 10 m and then AT THE LAST SECOND he touched the wall before Cavic because Cavic decided to glide in while Phelps swung all his force toward the wall touching by A HUNDREDTH OF A SECDOND BEFORE CAVIC! i was screaming like a maniac (no smart comments brett). you chould hear me down the street! the race REALLY pissed off Cavic, but that's understandable, I mean, he was closer to the wall than Phelps and Phelps touched first...UNBELIEVABLE!! AND that was his seventh gold in this olympics making it his 13th or 14th over all gold medal making him the most decorated olympic gold medalist IN HISTORY! also winning this last gold in Beijing means that he has tied the record for most gold medals in one olympics! Phelps is seriously the best athlete in the world!! (and this was all in his sig stroke-butterfly)
But as much as Phelps is an amazing swimmer and Olmpian, I like Ryan Lochte more. He has trained with Phelps, but still has never beat him (Phelps has only been beat once and that was in sydney when he was 14 and he got BRONZE!). Lochte has had the determination for years to beat Phelps and has been getting silver after silver after silver, always living in Phelps' shadow for all these years.
Then two nights ago, he beat Peirsol in the 200mBack (my stoke!
) and won his first gold! I was cheering for him so loudly! He was not only determined to come out of the shadow, but also take the world record in the event. He was incredible in the race and it's too bad that i couldn't see the award ceremony. He's also the HOTTEST Olympic swimmer out there! www.daytonabeachswimming.org/i…
God I love these guys!
