Conclusion on World Swimming Championship in Melbourne Australia

April 7, 2007 3:09am CST
I've been following the World Swimming Championship on Yahoo News and Michael Phelps seemed to be the World's Best Swimmer as of the moment. He surpassed Ian Thorpe's achievement of six gold medals in Fukuoka by winning seven gold medals and four individual world records in the process. He could've won eight gold medals if not for the unfortunate disqualification of their Medley Relay after Ian Crocker left the diving block too early, Phelps was resting during the event preparing for the Finals which should've happened in the evening. I admire him for being reluctant in blaming his team mate, "Team USA goes into a meet as one, and that's how we're going to exit," "Everything can't go perfect so it's all about how you adapt from these things and learn from your experiences." Phelps said in a poolside interview. He's too good to be true but he's not as gorgeous as Ian Thorpe, hehehe, only my POV. 21 year old Michael Phelps and 17 year old Katie Hoff are currently the best swimmers on the US Swimming Team roster. Both made the World Swimming Championship a learning experience to perform better at the 2008 Beijing Olympics where Phelps is aiming to win 8 gold medals in order to tie his records with Mark Spitz the only swimmer who won 8 gold medals at the 1972 Olympics. China should watch out for these 2 young swimmers if they want to dominate the swimming events on 2008 Beijing Olympics.
