Serious Black: Um, track and field does have some of that. Ever heard of the hurdles races? Or the steeplechase? Or the decathlon/heptathlon?
Bendal: Let's see; Phelps is the most decorated Olympic athlete in history, is worth millions in endorsements and ad contracts, probably for years to come.His girlfriend, OTOH, is a "supermodel" no one has ever heard of, and is already talking about a long term relationship and kids.Can anyone say "gold digger" here?
HMS_Blinkin: Serious Black: Why would you date a fugly guy like Michael Phelps if you could land any guy you wanted?Because he's genetically superior.
padraig: Not to piss on Michael Phelps' parade, he's a mighty athlete, but it's a bit unfair to praise him for all his medals (compared to other athletes) when he's in a field with so many opportunities to win some, what with all the combinations of distance, style, alone or by team, etc...A judoka, for instance, could be the best judoka since the beginning of time, but can only go for a medal in his own weight class. Same for all team sports, boxing, etc...
