I hate be the jerk but two of the medal were in relay races so he owes some fellow swimmers for life.

Phelps actually won three relay gold medals...

4x100m freestyle
4x200m freestyle
4x100m individual medley

and Spitz won gold in the same three events I believe too.

Yes, but does that really matter when he's got the most chances? I'm not doubting his skill, I know full well that he's the best swimmer in the world, I'm just saying that this craze over his medal count doesn't mean shit to me because he's had more chances than anyone.

Plazz, it's still pretty amazing though. I'm not sure, but didn't he get a gold in ALL events he participated in? That's pretty amazing.

It'd be hella funny if he was roided.

Yes, I have already realized that. I know he's the best swimmer, and I know that he will and would win every medal.

But what I'm frustrated about is the fuss about his medal count. Think of it like this. You hold a KO competition to see who can get the most KO's, and you have A. Silva in that competition, but it turns out that Silva gets to fight 8 times while others get 2-3 times, and then you praise Silva for winning that many.

(prob not the best example, but I hope you know what I mean)
