After last night, many are now saying that Michael Phelps is the greatest Olympian, ever. Phelps won his 20th Olympic medal in the men’s 200-meter individual medley event. He became the first male swimmer to win three gold medals in the same event, consecutively.
He went against his own teammate, and biggest competitor, Ryan Lochte. In the semifinals, Lochte came in first and Phelps in second. However, in the finals, the positions were switched.
This gold medal was his 16th gold medal, but his 20th career medal.
