Olympian Michael Phelps graced the cover of Sports Illustrated for the fifth time. This time he was accompanied by his record breaking eight Gold Medals.
The photo is modeled after Mark Spitz's iconic 1972 shot. Phelps broke Spitz's record for the most Gold in a single Olympic Game. I don't even like to watch swimming, nor can I swim. I usually gravitate more toward the Track and Field & gymnastic events but I loved watching in fiendish glee the clips of Phelps making history.
