Re: Sound off: How Impressive is Phelps record breaking medal count?

Name an olympian that has been more dominant in their 'olympic' sport. I can think of no one. Basketball isn't an olympic sport... just like golf isn't (but for some reason it is going to be one in 2016). Bolt runs two events... The only other I would even put on the level of Phelps is Jesse Owens and that is largely due to what was happening around him at the time. I can think of fewer times an athlete has been under more pressure.

Swimming is one of the most physically demanding sports you can take part in. I don't think you would ever hear a Navy SEAL or Special Forces guy poo poo swimming. Just my 2-cents though.

Outside of the Olympics, i think Jordan and Russell's championships are hard to equate.

I think it is very impressive to be honest. As i am also from Maryland, i am very proud to support a home town guy in Phelps that broke the record. Swimming is no joke. I use to Swim for college and compared to Phelps, i would stand no chance at all!
