    Unbelievable! Phelps wins the 100m Butterfly by 1 onehundredth of a second.
    Thought for sure he was gonna lose that one... and then :shock:

    That's 7 and headed for 8.

    A dispute was filed immediately thereafter. Of course, overhead cameras and electronic touchpads proved again Phleps was the winner. 100th of a sec or not, a win is a win. GO PHELPS!

    after viewing the tape, they decided not to proceed with protest. that and they probably can't see enough to really challenge it

    pretty crazy. when you're on a roll, though...

    i wonder how he feels that his 8th and history-making medal is not solely up to how he swims...

    anyone watching the ball? not as close as I'd anticipated but still a pretty good game to watch. wade is so freakin' explosive.. great defense (not just by him either), forcing lots of spanish turnovers.

    bit sick of the soccer bullshit though, fuckin' euros

    Phelps goes for number 8 in about 30 minutes and it sounds like it will be very competitive....

    Phelps is a machine but it was so cool for it to be a medley race that was number eight.
    And having team members make it possible.

    I also love watching his mom's responses.

    Yup. That judging was complete BS. Two of the girls that beat her fell or landed out of bounds. :?

    When I first saw that pic, the screen was only visible from his shoulders up. I thought he was wearing a red dress or bikini. :lol:

    It does sort of look like that. There's an interesting article online about what it takes to raise an Olympian and it's fascinating. Just more money than I imagined.
