The Golden Boy Wins First Gold – Sets Another New Record!
Posted by mattymoe on August 10, 2008
Michael Phelps won his first medal of the Olympic Games on Sunday in Beijing.
And, of course, it was Gold!
The U.S. swimmer smashed his own world record, comfortably winning the 400 metres individual medley gold medal in four minutes 03.84 seconds.
This is the first of a potential record-breaking eight gold medals at the Olympics for Phelps.
It was Phelps’s seventh career Olympic gold medal and ninth overall as he chases down Mark Spitz’s 36-year-old record of seven golds at one Games.
Let’s hope he does it all!
He’s already made history today.
