People don't truly understand how insane this is. To not only be the best in the United States at swimming but the World in MULTIPLE disciplines. The hours swimmers put in just to be a "good swimmer" is mind boggling. The guy is the greatest Olympian ever.

Truly he had it all. Even his body was proportioned perfectly to do what he did... Usually the distance from a person's fingertip to the other fingertip equals their height. Phelps "wingspan" was longer than he was tall perfect for swimming). Usually swimmers are really good at one stroke, he was "world record" good at many. And the form he had.. Just look at his butterfly. Freaking poetry in motion. His starts and turns were about as good as it gets (watch how he is still under water on the starts when others are already up and swimming and how he pulls ahead every time there is a turn). And I can't even tell you the voodoo he pulled on some of those close finishes. His strength training was totally on point and his endurance was beyond anything I have ever seen. To pull off a world record in the Olympics would take everything out of most people, but to swim event after event (and remember, he had to swim qualifying heats for each event as well as the final heat) shattering world record after world record, SEVEN TIMES in ONE Olympics?!! Truly, the GOAT if ever there was one. As impressive to see again today as it was watching it happen live "back in the day".

He checked all the boxes to be the greatest Olympian of all time. Most medals won✅ Most gold medals won✅ Most gold medals in a single Olympic ✅ World record breaking performances ✅ Longevity (2000-2016)✅ This guy changed the perspective of mainstream world about swimming. He made swimming popular more than ever. I still remember how he lost to Le clos in 2012 Olympics and came back in 2016 to prove his haters wrong. I missed him a lot during Tokyo Olympics. I don't think his legacy will be matched in near future.

he is great but not the greatest. You cant decide it with the amount of golds. Swimming is ridiculous with way to many events and styles. Usain Bolt is better. He won 100 200 in the olympics three times in a row and also many other too. There is also way more people able to compete in running.

@The final Verdict This severely undermines people who achieve amazing things in the midst of poverty, war, sickness, and destruction. Michael Phelps got to where he was because he worked hard for it. There's a saying, "Hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard." It doesn't matter how gifted you are or how good of an opportunity is presented to you if you don't utilize it to the fullest. Americans with all the best resources in the world still lose from folks around the world in all types of events, simply because they wanted it more and worked more for it. Michael Phelps is where he's at because he worked day and night for it. He's notorious for conducting upwards 3x the workout regiments his competitors were doing, ignoring people who tried to discourage his approach.

@ic8658
@ic8658 4 жыл бұрын
I totally agree, he is in my opinion the greatest Olympian of all-time. However, I don't always look at the 28 medals as the only thing that makes him so amazing, because the reality is that swimming is a sport that really allows that medal count to sky rocket versus say, sprinting in track and field. They just have way more events in swimming. That being said, I have Phelps as #1 and Bolt as #2, in my opinion.

IC before Phelps and Spitz, Gymnastics, Athletics and Cross Country Skiing dominated the medal tally. I believe it’s because they are Americans who has the greatest chances of securing all 3 relay golds. Nevertheless, Phelps has the most individual Olympic gold medals. Phelps is still the greatest in whatever way you cut the cake.
