2012 Summer Olympic Games – Men’s Swimming Schedule and Results

London 2012 Olympics Michael Phelps

Stating the obvious, Michael Phelps is an aquatic beast. He’s Aquaman. He probably has gills. Entering this year’s London 2012 Summer Olympic Games, Michael Phelps came in with an astonishing 16 medals under his speedo. The all-time record of medals received by an Olympian was 18, until Mr. Phelps came along. With 17 swimming events, the men’s competition is more fierce than ever, with everyone gunning for the Americans.

Phelps has surpassed the all-time Olympiad record of 18 medals and with this possibly being his last, he might as well go out with a bang. Team USA’s 4 x 200m Freestyle Relay absolutely destroyed the competition. In a stunning turn of events, Phelps was defeated and took the silver medal in the 200m Butterfly, with Chad le Clos of South Africa nabbing the gold.
