Michael Phelps

I've tried to imitate him and this is what happened. Maybe is not easy to swim as good as he does, but he makes it seem like that! 6 golden medals and 6 world records (and on his way to achieve his goal of 8 gold medals).
He tratado de imitarlo y esto es lo que ha pasado. Quizá no es fácil nadar tan bien como él, ¡pero hace que lo parezca! 6 medallas de oro y 6 récords mundiales (y de camino a conseguir su objetivo de 8 modellas de oro)

Even if he doesn't get to break Spitz's record, he has definitely become a sport legend. When somebody thought about an athlete, people thought about Carl Lewis; Michael Jordan was for basketball, Pele or Maradona in football... now, Michael Phelps is synonym of swimmer.
He is for sure the star of this Olympic Games in Beijing 2008.
Incluso si no consigue batir el récord de Spitz, se ha convertido en una leyenda del deporte. Cuando alguien pensaba en un atleta, la gente pensaba en Carl Lewis; Michael Jordan era el nombre para el baloncesto, Pele o Maradona para el fútbol... ahora, Michael Phelps es sinónimo de nadador. Él es, seguro, la estrella de los JJOO de Beijing 2008
