I actually jumped up and down when I read this...lol that's how excited I was...

*I am grinning...that was so exciting to watch. I am so proud of Michael as well as the other Team USA swim members. He did an amazing job and has the greatest class. What an outstanding individual and team player. Congratulations Michael!!!

P.S. I'm already ordering the DVD NBC was promoting Michael Phelps: Greatest Olympian Ever. I will be too happy to watch that dvd over and over again hehe :)

This feels like one of those "Great American Moments" that I will always be able to say I watched every step along the way and saw and felt the excitement. THIS is one of those moments I will not forget.

MICHAEL Phelps has won his eighth gold medal of the Beijing Games, the United States men's 4x100m medley relay winning in world-record time.

Aaron Peirsol, Brendan Hansen and Jason Lezak ensured that Phelps, who produced an enormous effort in the butterfly leg, concluded the meet in the finest possible style.

The US team clocked 3min 29.34sec to defeat Australia's quartet of Hayden Stoeckel, Brenton Rickard, Andrew Lauterstein and Eamon Sullivan.

Japan finished third.
