Phelps Sets the Record for Most Olympic Gold Medals

Michael Phelps seems to be unstoppable at the Games of the XXIX Olympiad in Beijing. The American swimmer has competed in five events thus far and has taken the gold in every one. Even more amazing, Phelps set a world record in all five of the events.

In addition to his current inventory of five gold medals from Beijing, Phelps won six gold (and two bronze) four years ago in Athens. With a total of eleven, Michael Phelps has more gold medals than any other Olympian in history. And with three more events to compete in at these Olympic Games, he probably isn’t done yet.
