Michael Phelps Has Run Out of Records to Break

Michael Phelps Has Run Out of Records to Break-photo

Michael Phelps is now the only person in history to have won eight gold medals in a single Olympics.

Phelps broke the previous record held by Mark Spitz when he won the 4x100 swimming relay in Beijing on Sunday.

Olympic hero Phelps credits his team for the victory.

"These guys made it possible," he said upon leaving the pool. "I literally wanted to do something that no one's ever done before in this sport. Without the help of my teammates it wouldn't have been possible."

"I don't even know what to feel right now—so many emotions. I guess I kind of just want to see my mom," Phelps said to People.

He did get a chance to embrace his proud mom Debbie in the stands.

Phelps has 16 Olympic medals, and 14 of them are gold. Which is a record in itself.

Kind of makes winning the sixth grade spelling bee look kind of average now, doesn't it?

    So... critics who say anything about Phelps can't say anything at all about the fact that he has 16 medals, 14 gold. That's more than anybody who has negative words for him can ever achieve in their life. Go Michael!
