I found this animated .gif floating around the net. Very nice shot of Michael Phelps winning the gold medal in historic fashion. What an amazing finish. I was watching this down at Frankie’s in Uptown and the whole place went silent for the swim and then crazy for the win.
Props to Phelps for his performance, I hope he can finish the deed this evening and make the history he’s been shooting for. Way to Power Up!!
Speaking of shooting, the Redeem Team waxed the Spanish this morning to assert their (and our) complete dominance of the sport of basketball. Keep on flying guys, you are a blast to watch.
UPDATE: They won the 400 IM (for the 11th straight time). Congrats to Phelps on 8 golden medallions.
