A week ago I had never heard of Michael Phelps. Now I, along with the rest of the world, are completely aware of this phenomenonal athlete. Eight gold medals. Wow.
For those of us who remember Mark Spitz winning his 7 gold medals 36 years ago, we thought that could never happen again. Not only did Michael Phelps tie that record, he went one better.
Thank goodness the Olympics are taking place this year. Watching the American athletes represent our country so well has restored some of my pride in our country. Thank you for that.
