Swimmer Michael Phelps won today the Olympic record-breaking eighth gold medal in a single Olympics game breaking the record held by Mark Spitz.
Mark Spitz won 7 Gold medals back in 1972 in the Munich Olympic Games.
With the 6 Gold medals Michael Phelps has won four years ago in Athens he has achieved now 14 Olympic Gold medals, the most of any Olympian.
Michael Phelps is a phenomenon and his success is in part attributed to his unique physique and to his high tech Speedo LZR Racer swimsuit. The Speed LZR Racer swimsuit is already available for pre-order if you want to feel like Phelps on the Speedo site.
Michael Phelps is not unbeatable though as the 100-meter butterfly showed on Saturday, where he got lucky and won by 1/100th of a second.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
