0731_phelps_medalsMichael Phelps has officially won more Olympic medals than ANY OLYMPIAN IN HISTORY -- winning his 19TH MEDAL moments ago during the 4x200m relay.

Phelps and his team -- Ryan Lochte, Ricky Berens, and Conor Dwyer -- picked up gold for the United States, with Phelps beating out France in the final stretch by almost a body length. China took bronze.

Phelps won his 18th earlier today -- a silver -- during the 200m butterfly.

In addition to the all-time Olympic medal record, Phelps also holds the all-time record for most gold Olympic medals (15), and the record for most gold medals in individual events (9).

The previous all-time Olympic medal count was held by Soviet gymnast Larisa Latynina, who won 18 total medals over 3 Olympics.

I heard that everyone on the USA teams hate him because he's such an egotistical douche bag. Can anyone confirm?

Seriously stop already! I really like you guys but you are making me dream about taking you out at the kneecaps! Stop posting Olympic results before they air on television!

All right TMZ, that's enough. Quit showing us the results of these US medals winners. You know you are losing viewers with every one you put out. Whoever okayed these releases needs to be fired. Get on it Harvey. This sucks and I think you guys know it, yet you still put it out. Thanks for nothing.

Thanks for all of the Olympic Spoiler alerts, TMZ. I'm checking for celebrity updates and NOT olympic updates. Trying to watch my favorite events 'live" so that I can experience them with the anticipation and energy that makes it exciting and fun. Stick to the LiLo stories or post Olympic updates on a separate tab, PLEASE! Love you guys, but banning TMZ until the Olympics are over!
