Michael Phelps is Unbelievable


It's cliche to say, but Hollywood couldn't have scripted that one better. Michael Phelps secured his record-tying seventh gold medal in the Beijing Olympics by beating Serbia's Milorad Cavic by .01 seconds. I'm sure the race will replay hundreds of times over the rest of the Olympics, the next four years, until the next Phelps comes along (if that ever happens).

Like Phelps, I am at a loss for words. If you missed this race, you missed something truly special. I'm certainly proud Phelps trained at the school I attend, in the town I grew up in. Go Blue, and Go Phelps.

The finish...just .01 seconds apart.
