Congratulations to Michael Phelps for His Seventh Gold Medal

OK, so I saw the video of the 100 meter butterfly event live at a sports bar, and when he won, the entire place erupted in a cheer.  This was the closest, and most amazing race I’ve seen in my entire life (it even beat the NASCAR races, and I’ve seen some NASCAR races that a pretty good).  The margin that Phelps won by was .01 seconds.  Here’s a video:

It was so close, you really have to see the slow motion replays.  It was purely amazing.  I’m still just in awe of how close it was.  Congrats to Phelps, he’s now tied with Mark Spitz for 7 gold medals won at a single Olympic games, and Phelps is expected to win his eighth tomorrow.

Good luck Michael!
