Michael Phelps, the 8th Wonder of the World

Michael Phelps had finally made it 8 gold medals out of 8 events that he had participated and at the same time created 7 world and 1 Olympic records. Of course out of the 8 gold medals, 3 came from the team relay events where his team had provided a stunning performance helping Phelps to achieve his dream of 8 gold medals.

Most of the events Phelps had won with a decent margin except for 100 meter butterfly where he had almost lost to Serbia's Milorad Cavic. The winning margin was only 0.01. Check out the frame by frame how Phelps had miraculously won the event. Just by looking at the initial frame, you would had thought that there was no way Phelps would had recovered to win. Its an amazing recovery and it will be a record that will stay on for many years to come.
