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.

Seriously TMZ Stop posting the results before it airs in the States. What's wrong with you Harvey? Put a link for those that want to see them to click on it, don't just over announce it. USE YOUR BRAIN TMZ EMPLOYEES!!!!

I think I have every right to complain about spoilers. I think they should have a little bit of respect for their readers by simply putting up a spoiler alert. Is that so much to ask? I'm not forbidding them to write about it at all, just respect the wishes of those who would like to watch it tonight... or risk losing readers, I guess.

Team USA has definitely impressed! Michael Phelps makes everyone proud for beating the record for winning 19 medals altogether! It was an amazing lead against France and he’s an inspiration to watch in the Olympics. Go Team USA! This served as some great conversation with my Dish coworkers today. I watched this race on my phone with the Dish Remote Access app. I love this app because it allows me to watch live and recorded shows all on my phone, plus I can set up timers on my DVR. It’s so convenient and I don’t miss any of my favorite events.
