Michael Phelps OddsMichael Phelps started to become a legend Olympic Games Athens 2004 after having debuted with only 15 in Sydney. The Baltimore swimmer had five gold medals (100 butterfly, 200 butterfly, 400 individual medley, 4x200 free, 4x100 styles and 200 colors) and two bronze (200 free and 4x100 free) before facing the greatest challenge of swimming history: overcoming seven gold medals Mark Spitz.

In the 2008 Beijing Games, Phelps became the greatest swimmer in the world to win eight gold medals (400 styles, 4x100 free, 200 free, 200 butterfly, 4x200 free, 200m medley, 100 butterfly and 4x100 styles). There were epic moments, like the relay Jason Lezak in the 4x100 free to beat France in the last long, and now to the controversy, as the photo finish with Milorad Cavic in the 100 butterfly.

Having achieved the feat, Phelps faced the London Games with less demand but with a final record for beating: that of the 18 Olympic medals the Ukrainian gymnast Larissa Latynina.

Failed in the 400 individual medley to place fourth in the final, had to settle for silver in the 4x100 free after France and could not overcome South Africa's Le Clos in fetish test, the 200 butterfly.

The nineteenth medal placed on top of the Olympic ladder hung it in the 4x200 free. He swam the last relay to tie the gold to the French. This time, the young Agnel shark failed to Baltimore, the best swimmer of all time in the history of the Olympics.
