Four years after he broke the Australian swimmer Mark Spitz's record of seven gold medals in an Olympic, Michael Phelps has now officially become the greatest Olympian ever, breaking the record held by Larisa Latynina, the former Soviet Union gymnast, after winning his 19th medal in the 4x200m relay.
Phelps said once "I've always felt most at home in the water... I disappear from the world. That's where I belong." He was recently congratulated by Mr. Barack Obama for his awesome achievement...
Just got a pretty cool phone call on the way to the pool from Mr. President
