The Untold Story of a Champion. Wikimedia Commons has media related to Michael Phelps. I was within half a second of medaling — it was literally, if I would have taken it out a little bit faster, maybe I would have had a chance.
I just really did kind of whatever it took. Phelps had won five world titles by the time he opened his Olympic account at Athens Competing in eight events in the Greek capital, he took gold in the m and m butterfly, m and m individual medley and the 4xm and 4xm freestyle relays with his USA team-mates.
He also won bronze in the m freestyle and the 4xm freestyle relay. His eight-medal haul matched the single Summer Games record set by Soviet gymnast Aleksandr Ditatyn, at Moscow , while his tally of golds was only one fewer than the record seven won by his fellow countryman Mark Spitz, in the pool at Munich It was about becoming the first Michael Phelps, not the second Mark Spitz.
I dreamed of doing something that no one had ever done before. Another 12 titles came his way at the and FINA World Aquatics Championships, held in Montreal and Melbourne respectively, a sign of things to come at Beijing , where he took gold in all eight events he contested.
It was a feat unprecedented in any sport in the history of the Games. In topping the podium in the m and m butterfly, m freestyle, m and m individual medleys and the 4xm and 4xm freestyle relays and the 4xm medley relay, the voracious Phelps posted seven world records and an Olympic record in the m butterfly.
His exploits in the Chinese capital made him the most decorated of all Olympians with 14 gold medals. In the years that followed, the Bob Bowman prodigy became the most decorated swimmer in the history of the world championships, winning five more titles in Rome in and a further four in Shanghai two years later to take his Worlds medal collection to 33, 26 of them golds.
In making his fourth Olympic appearance at London , where he announced his impending retirement, Phelps became the first male swimmer to win the m butterfly and m individual medley titles at three consecutive Games.
As well as landing the 4xm freestyle relay title, he took silver in the m butterfly and the 4xm freestyle relay before claiming an 18th Olympic gold in the 4xm medley.
