Phelps Wins 8th Gold Medal

The image of Mark Spitz' bushey moustache and speedo of the 70's will now officially be replaced by Michael Phelps and the new wave body suit. In what can only be described as unbelievable, Phelps finished off his trip Beijing with a clean sweep.

In his 8th and final race he took gold in the 400m Relay Saturday. That's 8 races and 8 gold medals...7 of them world records...unbelievable and unprecidented.

He beats Spitz record of 7 golds in one Olympics and has 14 total over two Olympics. He will forever be remembered for a legendary achievement.
