Stat of the Day

3 – Yes, Michael Phelps won his fourth gold in as many events yet it’s the number of records he’s broken that is the amazing feat, and to do it in consecutive events places him on the ultimate pedestal. Phelps won the 200-meter individual medley Thursday and also set world records in the 200 freestyle and 200 butterfly, halfway there to his goal of eight gold medals in the World Swimming Championships. The latest gold set a record 14th world championship medal for the 21-year old. Phelps is without a doubt, the Tiger Woods and Roger Federer of swimming.
