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.
Micheal Phelps, as he won 5 gold medals in the 2008 Bejing Olympics and 3 team gold medals;Breaking 3 world records at the time
Um the champion swimmer would be Micheal Phelps from the united states. from Canada this year ( 2008 ) in the Olympics it was Ryan Cochrane. He was the only swimmer to get Canada a medal in swimming. also great swimmer would be Natalie Coughlin is a great female swimmer from the u.s Ryan Lochte is also a great swimmer from the u.s. mike mintanko ian thorp is one of the worlds best but right now the worlds best swimmer is Micheal Phelps from the u.s. he got 8 gold medals and 7 world records at the Beijing 2008 Olympics! it was amazing!

At present we can say he is the best swimmer.
I do believe Micheal Phelps is the best swimmer at swimming event's in the world.
It depends on whether you are thinking of the best swimmer as the fastest swimmer or the best all-around swimmer. -The fastest 50m freestyle time is currently 23.97 by Libby Trickett. (October, 2008) -The best IM women swimmer is Stephanie Rice with a 2:08.45 in the 200m IM and a 4:29.43(?) in the 400m IM. (October, 2008)
i believe hes a top American swimmer
I think Rolandas Gimbutis (Lithuanian swimmer, 3 times olympian) is the tallest swimmer ever. He is 209 cm or 6'10". http://en.beijing2008.cn/news/sports/headlines/swimming/n214508381.shtml
I'd say ripjaws[ because he's the only swimmer].
