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.

Not surprised it was a team event - obviously the only medal he can win anymore. I have no doubt he only beat the French swimmer by so much because Lochte and the others built him up a good lead. Otherwise, for someone who set the world record last time, he’s been doing terrible.

Congrats to you Micheal Phelps! Also to those complaining about results being posted early, maybe you shouldn't be on a gossip page that is known to post Olympic Game spoilers. Just sayin'!
