The Swimming Superstar Phelps set a New World Standard destroying the competition at the Beijing Summer Olympic Games becoming the only man in History to Win 8 Gold Medals in a single Olympics. 

In August Phelps Rallied Americans Together – the TV acting as a Portal to both a Faraway Asian Land and more importantly to witnessing the Outer Limits of Athletic Achievement and Human Potential.

2008 was a year of Powerful Moments in Sports – the New York Giants Dramatic Super Bowl Win , Tiger Woods US Open playoff victory on One Leg , the epic Nadal / Federer Wimbledon final and a last second shot in the NCAA mens basketball championship.  But for Sportsman of the Year it was Phelps’ unprecedented 9 day 8 Gold Medal 7 World Record Performance in Beijing that Rises Above All.

Congratulations Champion – You Deserve It Man.

Michael Phelps, Garrett Weber-Gale, Cullen Jones and Jason Lezak smashed the world record in the 4x100m freestyle relay by an unheard of 4 seconds.  Jason Lezak’s final leg of 46.06 , destroying the world record, snatched VICTORY from the jaws of defeat for Team USA and has kept Phelps’s Dream of 8 Golds in 1 Olympics ALIVE.  Awesome, Guys.
