How about that 100 meter butterfly men’s final race? Michael Phelps won his 7th gold tying Mark Spitz for the most golds won in one Olympics. We all knew we were witnessing history as this race began. And we all said, “oh no!” as the race finished thinking Michael Phelps finished second. But the replay […]
