Can you imagine what it must be like to be able to say that at a particular moment in time you are the best 400 IM swimmer in the world? Any predictions on how many gold medals Phelps gets?

I was jumping up and down when he broke the record. hehe. I'm predicting 4 golds.

I want Thorpedo to kick his ass tomorrow.

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

I love Michael Phelps and want him to kick thorpe's ass (no real animosity towards thorpe... just american pride and the fact that i want phelps to prove him wrong that going for that goal of matching/reaching/passing spitz's record is "impossible" (even though he can't get 8 golds anymore))

call me optimistic but I'm still rooting for the ther 6 golds and don't want to predict anything lower ;)

Thorpe is hot, but I'm still a Phelps fan!

dammit!!! I was spoiled and I didn't even want to be... i went on the nbc olymics site and found out that thorpe beat phelps for the gold... and phelps didn't even get silver. DAMMIT

Well, I think a really large part of getting that many golds is the competition. Since Phelps is swimming against some of the greatest men's swimmers of all time, he has a much harder time getting so many golds than if he were swimming with the same talents of a few years back.

I predicted that he'd get 5 golds. Let's see how it turns out.

I don't really care about national pride, the talent is what matters. Thorpe is awesome.

At the risk of sounding pointless and shallow: Phelps is much better looking.

By Oliviakang (Oliviakang) on Tuesday, August 17, 2004 - 01:26 pm: Edit

that's what confuses me... (joining the shallowness) phelps has an amazing body of course and he's either much better-looking... or funny-looking depending on what he's doing/wearing/saying... Ian thorpe is more consistent on the cuteness and he doesn't look weird when he talks


anyway- still miffed about phelp's bronze [though it's the fastest he's swam the 200m free and set an american record]... anyone know why he chose to swim that rather than the backstroke??? (other than he wanted to compete againt the "best")?

By Aim78 (Aim78) on Tuesday, August 17, 2004 - 04:16 pm: Edit

Thorpe's got the more unique face, which makes it somewhat easier on the eyes. And he's an inch taller and wears size 17 shoes.

I say this as a staunch heterosexual. I think...

hahahahahhahah

well michael has "magic hands" and size 14 feet.... and a wingspan three inches than his body length


lol
