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.

This is good support for the pro-marijuana movement, considering that Michael Phelps is a major pothead.

Who's the LOSER now TMZ? You were way too harsh with your previous headlines about Michael Phelps. Now you must eat your words in the face of your fans... At the very least, an apology is in order. I'm just saying.
