Micheal Phelps is the worlds best swimmer. He won 8 olympic golds in Athens, and also this year, 2008, in Bejing. No one has ever won this many medals before, in history. Many agree that he is the worlds best swimmer! before phelps, grant hackett was the best. Yet if you think about it Mark Spitz was the best swimmer of all time. That's because he swam the Olymics with no goggles unlike anyone post 1976.
