Michael Phelps makes history

boy this just happened. Michael Phelps wins his 4th consecutive 200m Individual Medley gold, thus making history two ways. 1: becomes the 4th athlete to win 4 consecutive gold in the same event winning this event in 2004, 2008, 2012 and this year (Paul Elvstrom of Denmark in firefly dinghy in 1948, 1952, 1956 and 1960. Al Oerter in discus in 1956, 1960, 1964 and 1968 and Carl Lewis in long jump in 1984, 1988, 1992 and 1996). 2: passes Larisa Latynina of Russia for most individual medals with 15 (Latynina has 14). wow.
