Best Olympian Ever

American Swimmer Michael Phelps has just won his 10th career Olympic Gold Medal.  He now stands alone as the only athlete to win 10 gold medals.

It was only minutes ago when Phelps won the 200m butterfly to capture his fourth Gold of the 2008 Olympics and his 10th overall gold medal.  Phelps is 4/4 this Olympics with gold medals and has broken world records in all four events.  This begs to question if he truly is the best Olympian ever.  The B-more native is nasty and even has the chance at winning 4 more gold medals in China.  His fourth gold medal tonight was his 25th career world record, he needs three more total medals to tie Mark Spitz's record of overall medals.  He is extremely young and certainly should pass that record before his swimming career is over.  Phelps has another relay final tonight and another chance at Gold.  GO USA!
