Shout out to the big homie Michael Phelps. Took over 2,000 years, I mean before Jesus was born, for us to see this record soon to go down.

Michael Phelps is poised to break a two century old individual medal record dating back to the ancient games. Leonidas was considered the greatest olympic athlete of his time - of all time. Until, hopefully, these modern Rio Games.

Phelps already tied Leonidas' individual record of 12 medals. So, if Phelps can win a gold in the 200m Individual Medley, it's a wrap, he is better than any athlete in the ancient or modern Olympics.

TURN UP FOR USA MIKE! I wanna be like this Mike!
