Who Is the Athlete with the Most Medals in the Olympics?

Do you love sports? Do you know who won the most medals in the Olympics? He is Michael Phelps, who won 23 olympic gold medals, 3 silver medals and 2 bronze medals at the Olympics when he retired in Rio 2016. This record is unlikely to be broken in the next few years. The following is the main introduction to the creative swimmer.  

Phelps began to create his Olympic legend at the age of 15, and he won the fifth place in the 200-meter butterfly final at the 2000 Sydney Olympics. In reviewing this achievement, the highly demanding swimmer said: I am in the fifth place, which is a great achievement. Phelps said: "I swim every holiday, every Christmas, every birthday, I am doing my best, I want to know what I can really do.

Phelps has won five world championships when he made his debut at the 2004 Athens Olympics. In eight competitions in Athens, Greece, he and his American teammates won olympic gold medal in the 100m and 200m butterfly, 200m and 400m individual medleys and the 4x100m and 4x200m freestyle relays. He also won the bronze medal in the 200m freestyle and the 4x100m freestyle relay. His eight medals are comparable to the single summer Olympics record set by Soviet gymnast Alexander Ditainin at the 1980 Moscow Olympics.

He won 12 championships at the FINA World Swimming Championships in Montreal and Melbourne in 2005 and 2007 respectively. At the 2008 Beijing Olympics, he won eight gold medals in all eight projects. This is an unprecedented feat in any sport in the history of the Olympics.

Phelps broke the seven world records and the 100-meter butterfly Olympic record. His performance in the Chinese capital has made him the most medalist among all Olympic athletes.

At the 2012 London Olympics, Phelps participated in the Olympic Games for the fourth time and became the first male swimmer to win the 100m butterfly and 200m individual medley championship for three consecutive years. In the 4x200m freestyle relay championship, he also won the silver medal in the 200m butterfly and 4x100m freestyle relay, and won the 18th Olympic gold medal in the 4x100m medley.Phelps' brilliant record in London has brought his total number of victory medal to a record 23, exceeding the top 18 best. The first 18 medals were accumulated by Soviet gymnast Larry Saratinina in the 1950s and 1960s.

Despite his retirement at the 2012 London Olympics, Phelps was unable to resist the temptation of the pool and returned to training in April 2014. His goal is Rio de Janeiro in 2016.

Phelps started his Rio de Janeiro tour with a decisive second round of swimming in the 4x100m freestyle relay. He helped the United States win the gold medal before France and Australia, the 19th gold medal in his legendary career. Two days later, the 20th and 21st arrived in an hour respectively. He won the 200m butterfly championship for the third time and the 4x200m freestyle champion for the fourth time. After winning the second victory, he established a heroic status in the Rio de Janeiro competition. 

In December 2016, Phelps presented his Olympic medals in Sports Illustrated magazine. They weigh a total of 8 kilograms, which is an amazing weight. It can be seen that Phelps can be said to be a leader in swimming.

Phelps said: "It all started with a little dream of childhood, that is to change the swimming movement, try to do something that has never been done before," so if you have a dream, please stick to it. Believe that you can get the sport medal of honor that belong to yourself.
