The 31-year old great United Sates Olympian, Michael Phelps on Tuesday night took his 21st Olympic gold medal in the 4×200 freestyle relay at the Rio Olympics held in the Brazilian city. On the same day in the early hours Michael took silver for 200 meters butterfly.
Michael is the most decorated Olympian in the Olympics history as he becomes the oldest individual swimming gold medalist after the South African defending champion Chad le Clos, who bet him at the 2012 Olympics in London.
Competing in his fifth and final Olympics, Phelps says that he won the 200 meters butterfly within a time span of 1 minute 53.36 seconds, while Chad has lost badly in the final 50 meters who ended up fourth. So, Phelps enjoyed his victory at the Rio Olympics by wagging his index fingers and gesturing the crowd at the event to “bring the noise.”
Phelps further claimed that the 200 meters butterfly was his “bread and butter,” pointing that this event was his first swimming race he swam as a 15 year old boy in the year 2000 at the Olympics held in Sydney.
Phelps in his career till date received 25 medals which include two silver and two bronze. The great man has finally enjoyed his victory and it was very sweet that Phelps offered few tips to le Clos. Both the stars also discussed to go together to a shark dive in South Africa.
