Michael Phelps the Most Decorated Olympian Of All Time
Michael Phelps II (born June 30, 1985) is an American competition swimmer and the most decorated Olympian of all time, with a total of 26 medals. Phelps also holds the all-time records for Olympic gold medals (22, more than twice that of the second highest record holders), Olympic gold medals in individual events (13), and Olympic medals in individual events (15). In winning eight gold medals at the 2008 Beijing Games, Michael Phelps broke fellow American swimmer Mark Spitz’s record of 7 first-place finishes at any single Olympic Games.
Five of those victories were in individual events, tying the single Games record. In the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, Phelps won four golds and two silver medals, making him the most successful athlete of the Games for the third Olympics in a row.
In his first 2016 summer Olympics event on August 7, the 4 × 100 m freestyle relay, he won his first gold medal of the 2016 Games and his 19th Olympic gold medal overall. Phelps swam the second leg with what his coach Bob Bowman described as “probably the best turn that’s ever been done underwater”
