Why are the middle lanes typically reserved for the projected winners? Swimming. You see it in the track events too.

Here's to Michael Phelps, the 51st greatest Summer Olympics nation of all time (36th if you count in golds).

Unreal by Phelps

It'd be interesting to know whether each of those medals mean the same to him or are some more special than others. I'd imagine there will be some days where he'll look at one of the medals and be like "hmmm when did I win this one!?"

I'm actually fairly sure that's how it really is.

Both her(?) and her sister(?) are far too masculine.

It's insane how those guys run an entire 25 laps with most maintaining the pace they started with or bettering it down the stretch. Then again when you weigh 115lbs, there's not a whole lot holding you back

I watched more Summer Olympics coverage today (well, technically yesterday) than I ever have before in my life and I have one conclusion to make: there are some amazing people out there who are able to push their bodies and minds to accomplish things that we're probably once thought of as being impossible. It is amazing to see what sorts of stunts these athletes are able to pull off. Medal or no medal, win or loss, they are very inspiring.

There's absolutely nothing masculine about either of them. Serena is one of the greatest women ever in tennis.

How do you put together this list every day? If I were to actually go to the olympics website and sift through events looking for canadians and make a list like this, it'd be so tedious. You're amazing.
