Lots of “8s” for the 8.8.08 Olympics and Phelps

PhelpsOnce again TV in our house was tuned in to watch the 2008 Beijing Olympics on Saturday night. We were anxious to see Michael Phelps swim again — and swim he did. This time Phelps did it with his American teammates — Aaron Peirsol, Brendan Hansen and Jason Lezak — in the Men’s 4 x 100m Medley Relay winning another American gold medal … the 8th for Phelps making it a single Olympic games record. This final gold medal for Phelps left him near speechless after the finish and gives him a total of 14 Olympic golds — Phelps now stands alone in sports history with the most Olympic gold medals.
