Michael Phelps has a thing or two to learn about Olympic fairness.
Swimmer Michael Phelps won his twentieth Olympic medal last night when he defeated fellow American Ryan Lochte in the 200-meter medley. And his Olympics haven’t yet ended. Should he qualify, Phelps could extend his medal record in the 100-meter butterfly later today and the 4×100-meter medley relay on Saturday.
“I thanked [my teammates] for being able to allow me to have this moment,” Phelps explained after his 200-meter relay victory earlier this week broke the all-time Olympic medal-record of eighteen. “It has been a pretty amazing career but we still have a couple of races left.”
Despite verbal graciousness toward teammates and all the third-person “we” talk, Michael’s message is loud and clear: I accomplished all this.
Oh, dear. Do you think Michael will be invited to the White House after this?
