Michael Phelps

(tried posting last night, blogger wasn't allowing me to log in for some reason)

Congratulations to Michael Phelps for an incredible 8th Gold Medal win yesterday with his relay teammates. I was watching the race live and was scared they wouldn't do it when the second swimmer was falling back a little, tiny bit. But then Phelps was able to make that up and surpass the other swimmers by a little, and then the fourth guy finished it off. Just incredibly awesome.

And did you hear?

Phelps is the wealthiest swimmer at age 23, bringing in $5,000,000 in endorsements.

And I was blown away by this next fact about him... HE EATS 12,000 CALORIES A DAY! A DAY!! He trains 30 hours a week, I barely do that in 3 weeks, some of the time. The guy is incredible and just, a superhuman! WOW!
