“The Greatest Olympian of All Time showed why in the final chapter of his storybook Olympics journey, combining his excellence in the water with team captainship and mentorship for 33 rookies. The Team USA flagbearer finished the Rio Games with 6+ medals for the fourth straight Olympics, winning five gold and a silver. His first individual gold was a reclamation of sorts, winning the 200m butterfly after placing second in 2012. Phelps achieved another historical marker by becoming the first swimmer to win the same event in four straight Olympic Games when he ran away with the 200m IM by nearly 2 seconds. With three relays wins, Phelps has extended his Olympic legacy with 28 total medals, including 23 gold.”
