With 23 gold medals, and 28 medals total with men’s 4*100m medley relay, it’s no wonder why at age 31 Michael Phelps is being touted as the greatest Olympian of all time.
Michael Phelps may yet reverse his decision to call time on an unrivaled career after his last race of Rio 2016.
But the thousands of fans who traveled from across the world to be at the Aquatics Stadium tonight were not passing up their chance to salute the most decorated athlete in the history of the Games.
Phelps and teammates Ryan Murphy, Cody Miller and Nathan Adrian set an Olympic record as they kept off Great Britain in what at first looked to be a close race.
But the fans would have raised the roof off the 15,000-seat venue regardless of tonight’s result in the men’s 4x100m medley relay.
In Rio, Phelps amazed again, winning four gold medals and a silver, four years after retiring from the sport he had already dominated for so long. While he says he is retiring again, speculation has already begun that he will return for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo at age 35.
