BREAKING NEWS: Michael Phelps ties with Mark Spitz record…

The young Michael Phelps made history in the Olympics again tonight, tying with Mark Spitz’s record of 50.8 in the 100 meter butterfly race earlier tonight. At first, swimmer Milorad Cavic of Serbia was ahead but Phelps quickly caught up with Cavic and both of them raced to the end. Phelps just touched the wall to get the win just before Cavic made it on the last minute. It was a close race and Phelps came this close to being no. 2.

Phelps is done racing in the individual races but there’s always the next Olympics to break more records and win more golds.

It was a good race. I’m watching the Olympics now as I’m typing this.
