breaking news

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.

@Blackpride, -is it?- but, 1968 called and left a message for you: It wants it's divisive, hate-filled, Anti-American, and PLAYED-OUT mentality back.

You see, it's 20TWELVE, and it's REIGNING
Michael (s)! Betta ask somebody, son.

20Twelve:
Daniel Twelve;1 is HERE,
Proverbs Twelve;7 is NOW,
Zechariah Twelve;8 is NOW,
St. Mark Twelve;36 is NOW,
Psalm2;012 is NOW:
The Most Blessed Christ King Yeshua reigns!
ALL, for The Greater Glory of The True and Living Yahweh!

so the other day TMZ calls him a loser, now today they are acting all patriotic. You aren't fooling anyone TMZ. Stick to covering Kim's fat ass and stay away from sports.

those that keep complaining about them ruining the results, NBC tells you the results anyway when they start the show before they show you the event. Get over it.

Seriously? Another comment another b!tchfest about spoilers. Hmmmmm let's see, there's this little thing called the Olympics going on that the entire world is watching and wanting to know what happens.....BUT, all you princesses want the world to put any and all reporting on hold until NBC can decide what time frame is going to make them the most money to broadcast at. Here's an idea....why not stay up to date with the rest of the world and bloody well stream it??? I know you have the internet cuz you've used it to see the spoilers and to b!tch about it.
