    Haha, indeed.

    See my theory is that anyone who beats us for a gold medal in the pool is on 'roids. Don't see how people could think otherwise tbh

    Agreed. No Aussie, ever, has been a drug cheat. Even the Reiterer bloke who wrote a book admitting he was on the juice was simply confused.

    Didn't think Phelps would do it, but now I think he can. The dude is inhuman. Gelman is right - it's not even a big thrill for him to win a gold medal. Just says 'All right, I guess it was sort of hard racing against these pansies'.

    Only 3 countries have more golds than Phelps. Only 10 countries have more medals than him! What a machine.

    Romania on 4 medals atm
    Or something.

    His first 3 or 4 he was pumped, celebrated them all hard. I just think he's ****ing tired as **** and knows he's only going to get more tired.

    And that's seven. Worst possible finish from the Serb

    Hahaha **** me that was amazing. Knew he would come home strong because it's how he'd done it through the heats & semis, but I didn't think he could come back after given them that big of a break in a final.

    The guy's a freak really.

    Check the 10 year old (well 14, but she looks about 10) swimming for China in the 800 final.
