GOLDEN BOY – Michael Phelps

Hawt stuff!

Michael Phelps official site. Includes a biography, schedule and results,
ask Michael section, and links.

Seven Gold Medals! and counting…

Michael’s amazing finish that led to his 7th gold medal win and consequently his tying Mark Spitz’s Olympic record for most gold medals single games.

Olympic history!

ESPN

[…]Believe in The Closer, the guy who now has won the gold in this event twice, in back-to-back Olympics, by a combined five-hundredths of a second. Believe in Phelps. Don’t ask how he does it, because sometimes there are no rational explanations. Just believe.

The scoreboard showed a result that shocked everyone in the Water Cube, and probably most of the rest of planet Earth. Phelps had done it, by the smallest unit of measurement in swimming — a single hundredth of a second.

Phelps: 50.58.
Cavic: 50.59.
The immense historical achievement of tying Mark Spitz’s Olympic record for most gold medals in a single Games suddenly was an afterthought. The breathtakingly dramatic nature of this single race obscured everything else.

By sleight of hand, or length of arm, or force of will, Michael Phelps won again. The quest for the great eight was kept alive by a great escape. Just when the story couldn’t get any better, it did. The Phelps phenomenon soars onward, seemingly without limit.[…]
Michael Phelps… wall…touch…first place…in that order.


More U.S. Olympic hunks
Guys I tried my best to find a decent link to a photo slideshow of lovely female U.S. Olympians but have given up. All I found were mixed together with other countries and were co-ed.
So you are on your own. lol

I accidentally deleted a track back from simplyjas.com/blog. So I will link to her Michael Phelps post to make amends. 😉

She has included in her post Milorad Cavic’s thoughts, as excerpted from his blog. Cavic of course was the silver medal winner in the men’s 100m butterfly competing against Phelps. He wishes to move on and is thrilled to have won the silver medal in the event.

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host - by the Divine Power of God - cast into hell, satan and all the evil spirits, who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
