Michael Phelps

Crowd Surfing Accident

Inside Vegas Nightclub ... CAUGHT ON TAPE

EXCLUSIVE

Finally, Michael Phelps broke something that wasn't a world record -- HIS ASS -- taking a nasty spill while crowd surfing in a Vegas nightclub this week ... and TMZ has the footage!

Phelps -- who's STILL in party mode after the London Games -- hit up XS nightclub Monday night, and for some reason thought it would be a good idea to crowd surf inside an inflatable raft.

It was not ... because the 18-time gold medalist barely made it a few feet before toppling backwards onto his ass.

Thankfully, we're told he was okay -- but the video's still awesome. Check it out.

Thanks to our friends at papUrazzi.com for the clip.

IT APPEARS THAT THIS YEAR'S CROP OF OLYMPIC MEDALISTS (PARTICULARILY FROM THE USA) ARE COMPLETE DOUCHEBAGS THAT LIKE TO PROVE SOMEONE CAN BE A "WINNER" AND A TOTAL LOSER AT THE SAME TIME.

Didn't crowd surfing die back in the 90's?
