michael phelps did it!!!!!! not that i ever doubted that he would. he beat mark spitz record and won 8 gold medals in single olympics. he is sooo amazing!!! i'm so glad that he beat it, i think that he worked really hard for it. even if a couple of the races were a close call, i think he deserved it. this was definatly the most intense and enjoyable olympics i've watched my whole life. i'll miss seein him swim soooo much. i wish it were like an every day thing lol. i love him!!!
