Water Wolverines

It was a Gold and Bronze Olympic performance for Wolverine Swim team members Michael Phelps and Peter Vanderkaay in the 200-meter freestyle.

Phelps, of course, has already won three gold medals in Beijing, all in record time. Today's victory was his ninth career gold medal and tied him with Mark Spitz, Carl Lewis, Paavo Nurmi and Larysa Latynina for the most in Olympic history. With five more events on his Olympic itinerary there's a good chance this University of Michigan product will soon stand alone at the top of the international heap. Makes me proud to be a UM alum.

I just wish he could play quarterback.

Michael Phelps has done it! 8 Gold Medals!
Congrats, Wolverine
