Latynina still holds the record for most Olympic medals in individual events (14 to Phelps' 13). However, Phelps has already qualified for the 2016 Olympics and stands a reasonable chance to at earn at least a bronze in more than one individual event there; while Latynina (who was born in 1934) is still living, it's unlikely that she will compete in any future Olympiads.
