“Michael Phelps is a freak of nature and can swim with sharks!” – Josh Peterson, South Jordan, UT
“Michael Phelps compared to Mark Spitz is like comparing Tiger Woods to Arnold Palmer. Tiger completely dominates. Michael Phelps is a hole in one over Mark Spitz birdies” – William Charles, Boston, MA
“Michael Phelps can outswim Shamu!” - SeaWorld
(Okay, SeaWorld never really said that, but they should!)
Let’s take an inside look at Mr. Phelps body measurements according to the official Olympic roster:
Michael Phelps, 6/30/1985, Baltimore, Md., Baltimore, Md., Ann Arbor, Mich., 6’4”, 185 lbs
6’4, 185 lbs of strength, endurance, heart, passion and pure SPIT FIRE!
According to one of his Russian rivals – Alexander Sukhorukov “He is just a normal person, but maybe from a different planet,” Sorry Alexander – there’s nothing “normal” about Michael Phelps! He’s simply a freak of nature. What other words can you use to describe him?
Did you watch him in the 4×100 relay? Incredible!

I don’t know if, in my lifetime, I’ll ever see anything like this again.
Michael, congratulations on your incredible feats thus far! Bring home 8 in 2008!
