Everyone know that Rio will be the last Olympic game for The Legend M. Phelps. Nobody has more medals, no one has more gold medals and no one has been able to win so many in the same Olympic Games.

It is undoubtedly the king of the history of the Games.
And that Phelps started swimming almost by chance. He did not like the water. In fact, he was afraid. But he found in the pool an escape route to avoid spending time at home and watch the continuous and strong arguments of their parents, who would end up divorcing. Her sisters were who convinced him, especially Whitney, who was to figure of swimming until he stopped short with a back injury.
It was worth the effort because they soon began to get the results. The first major achievement was to qualify with only 15 years for the Sydney Games, being the youngest swimmer of the competition. Not disappoint, leaving a good impression on the audience and bewildering respect in his rivals to achieve fifth in 200m butterfly.
From that moment, he began the meteoric and unstoppable Phelps race. Only five months after his performance in Sydney, he broke the world record in the same discipline at the 2001 Fukuoka World Championships, becoming the earliest record holder in history.
