The man who swims like a fish has the memory of an elephant.
Michael Phelps never forgets. But until 2015, when he moved from Baltimore to Arizona to train with coach Bob Bowman, the most decorated Olympian of all time had never looked at all his medals together.
“I could remember back to every single thought I had on the medal stand, after the race, every single one of them,” Phelps said in March. “I could remember my facial expression after getting third in 2004 in the 200 free. Every little tiny thing.”
To most swimming fans, Phelps’ races are harder to distinguish from one another. Which race produced his first gold medal? In what two events has Phelps won three golds? Which relay featured Jason Lezak’s heroic anchor leg? What’s more amazing than seeing Phelps’ 22 medals in one place? Knowing he isn’t done.
