Also worth nothing: Our darling Dara Torres *lost* by 0.01 seconds by essentially the same tactic — she glided to the wall whereas her competitor gambled and took a final short-stroke.

I'm over Phelps. I'm over people overshadowing everyone else because this obviously gifted athlete keeps winning. Some people are super human. That is who they are we need not over celebrate it. Clap, congratulate and move on. Sorry.
