As if Michael Phelps needed to make any more of a statement, he did just that on Day 7 with a monstrous victory in the 100M Butterfly, once again defeating Milorad Cavic of Serbia.
It was Cavic that Phelps touched out at the 2008 Beijing Games for the gold in the same event and preserved his eight-for-eight bid four years ago.
The win made it a three-peat for Phelps in the 100M Butterfly, the same thing he did in 200M IM on Day 6.
Michael Phelps swims in his last Olympic race on Day 8 in the 4 X 100M Medley Relay. Mel Stewart, a two-time gold medalist in his own right, explains why Phelps will end his career with gold.
