What a race! Phelps wins by 0.01 seconds !!!

Another sensational race happening over at Beijing Olympics, this time at the Water Cube instead of the Bird’s Nest. At first i thought the gold won by US team relay was amazing as they had to come back from behind to win, with Jason Lezak practically overtaking the French swimmer at the last few strokes. But what about this one from Phelps? 0.01 fcking seconds? Damn pity that Serbia guy la but good thing is we have the technology to confirm the real winner, otherwise, it would have been a big headache to judge purely by photo finish. Absolutely sensational !!!

  1. Michael Phelps is, without a doubt, the face of his sport just like Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan, Wayne Gretzky, Muhammad Ali, Brett Favre, Roger Federer and Babe Ruth. However, for all that he accomplished in this years Olympic games, I still don’t think he ranks in the top 5 of all-time Olympians.

    Here is my TOP 5 All-Time Olympians:

  2. Correction: I said MY top 5 All Time Olympians. I should have said HIS (the L.A. Times writers Philip Hersh’s) top 5. My bad.
