Another day, another Olympic record.
Not content with a measly silver or bronze, the human fish, Michael Phelps, beat out rival Ryan Lochte today during the 200 Meter IM and took home the gold, to Ryan's silver.
While Michael earned his 19th medal last night, breaking the world record for number of medals by any Olympian, he broke his own record today (with yet another medal) and set a new one by winning a gold in an an individual event in three consecutive games, a feat no other athlete has accomplished.
Michael has tomorrow's 100 butterfly to look forward to, which is he wins, he'll break his own record (again) and snag his 21st Olympic medal.
Michael swung by to chat with Piers Morgan and told the talk show host he finds his lifestyle "normal" regardless of the fact he's spent 20 years in the pool. After the Games he intends to relax, but please, no big bodies of water.
"I don't want to get in the water," he said. "I spent so much time in the water; I'm like 'No I'll sit here on the beach. … I don't want to get in the water and play."
