he has HOW MANY GOLDS?
Michael Phelps has just won his 20th career Olympic gold medal in the 200m butterfly, just edging out Masato Sakai of Japan by 4/100ths of a second. Chad le Clos finished 4th. i thing he looked left into Phelps lane a couple of times costing him a medal. this gold is also 14th individual medal tying him with Larisa Latynina of Russia (the Soviet Union when she competed) for most individual Olympic medals.
update: he picked up gold #21 in the 4x200m freestyle relay. wow.
