Weekend Wrap #25: Eight Gold Medals Edition

news_wrap.jpgI doubt I am spoiling it for anyone but Michael Phelps captured his eighth gold medal in a single Olympic Games in Bejing. I was one year old when Mark Spitz won seven gold medals in 1972. I never saw the man swim but seeing how it took over 35 years to break his record it is saying quite a bit. I am sure the nutrition and training levels today outpace those of 1972 but no matter how you slice it, Michael Phelps will probably go down in history as the greatest Olympian of all time.

Okay, enough fanny kissing on Michael Phelps. How about some links?
