What a photo finish. Simply incredible. Cavic had said that it would be good for Phelps to lose -
Phelps coach reminded him of Cavic's comment right before the race. Perhaps that was the fingernail difference. The difference to finish a quest as opposed to be a spoiler. Either way, it was incredible viewing and on a personal level, a little gut wrenching.
“I think it’d be good for the sport, and it’d be good for him if he lost once. Just once. Let’s be honest about that. It’s true. It’s good to lose sometimes. I know because I’ve lost a lot. For him, what would it mean? I would hope that he would cut down his events for the next year and start training more for the 100 fly. There’s no doubt in my mind that’s he’s the best. Will he be the best here? I don’t know. He’s got a lot on his plate. Hopefully that will work out for me.”
Lots of pride for Milorad and for Michael. Milorad, you put Serbia ahead of Canada in the Medal Count. Thank you for that! Michael, you're just one incredible dude!
Now, if you haven't watched the Olympics, go in fact hurry, you're missing out on some incredible human drama...tune in tonight and lose sleep like we all did over here on the West Coast.
