Serious Black: Um, track and field does have some of that. Ever heard of the hurdles races? Or the steeplechase? Or the decathlon/heptathlon?

I don't get steeplechase. They're steeples, they don't move. How much of a chase could they give you?

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?

Oh I think the basic question is can Phelps RECOGNIZE a gold digger?

Phelps is a great swimmer, no doubt about it.

However, I generally disagree with calling him the "greatest Olympian" because the medal count of swimmers gets so inflated.

Swimming events:
100M Freestyle
100M Backstroke
100M Butterfly
100M Breaststroke

200M Freestyle
200M Backstroke
200M Butterfly
200M Breaststroke

200M of you swimming a combination of those
400M of you swimming a combination of those

200M of you and a team swimming one of those
200M of you and a team swimming a combination of those....

400M ...... etc, etc etc....

Why not just have ONE 100M and ONE 200M race.... called "swim there any way as fast as you can?"


Don't you think that some of those sprinters would have a few more medals if track and field was like swimming? Not a fanboy of Usain Bolt, but how many more medals would Bolt have if the track races were:

100M run
100M walk
100M shuffle
100M skip

200M .... etc.

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.

Their baby would basically be a mermaid.

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...

1. Spot-on, old chap.

2. I would totally watch team boxing.
