Good Bye Phelps

Michael Phelps has set a new record which i think will be hard to be beaten in the next 10 years or so. He just got 18 gold medals in all of his participation in the olympic arena. His first appeareance 12 years ago didn't end well, but he started to shine at the 2004 Athena and his peak was in Beijing in 2008 where he grabbed all the gold medals that he could possibly won. It was a world record that no swimmer has had it before. In London, he got 3 gold medals. Not his best, but i think it's normal due to aging. He decided to retire after this event. What a great accomplishment. Good bye Phelps. Your record will remain be remembered and i guess no one could ever achieve the same thing you have achieved in the last 12 years.
