Usain Bolt, of course. He wins gold medals and tens of millions of dollars to run in a straight line for less than 10 seconds 8)

Missy Franklin is definitely the surprise overachiever of these games. She won 4 golds and 1 bronze in her first Olympics at age 17. She also made the finals of two other events.

Maybe the female Michael Phelps?

All participants to the Olympics are winners to my eyes. I congratulate them all, especially those that managed with minimal funding, support and means. I admire them the most.

On the other hand i can clearly see a loser: This very Olympic Spirit which has been dead some decades now -and this is very sad. O tempora o mores..

Anybody who is there and truly enjoying their events. There was a blond German girl in gymnastics who just really impressed me. I don’t know her name but I marveled at how much she seemed to be enjoying doing her routine. Not the mask of smiles before starting, not the joy from winning . . but the joy from doing the best one can regardless of one event’s result at one moment in time.

So many of the athletes don’t seem to be having that kind of enjoyment, but IMO being excellent while also having that level of enjoyment from the process makes one a winner.

Man, that one hit my funny bone DEEEEEEP. I’m LMAO!!! That’s why he is so fast. His coach puts a shark in the pool with him. OMG Seriously, what Phelps has done is epic. So if the question (not sure what the Question is) is who is the greatest Olympian/winner………..Hands down Michael Phelps!

There are so many winners, it is no fair in my opinion to point just the ones on the most known sports.

By the way, I feel sad watching the girls in gymnastics, they look so fragile, I can’t tell how bad could be their health,

and also for the marathon, they look like they are going to get a leg broken on each step.

There is no individual winner, winner is China

PS: Collective has more power than one individual and thats why China is winner and not Michael Phelps.

Ok, just dont become stalker Big Smile
For me also the winner would be who gets more fun from the games (after China, China is reall winner and some coutnries, forbidden to mention i negative context, are loosers Big Smile )

I think among women volleyball players there is much collectivity and I dont know, it seems like that, women are most times better than men in some qualities, more patient, tolerant etc Smile

No doubt about it Michael Phelps.

Nobody will probably in 3 lifetimes ever break his gold medal record let alone his total medal record.

What irritates me heavily around sports that it is given much more attention (media, financial etc) than it objectively deserves. In some countries more so than others. Also, what irritates me next about it, are totally stupid statements of people around sports (journalists, players themselves, coaches, audience). Sometime they talk about so simple things like they are, I dont know, important philosophical questions or something of outmost importance in our lives.

I mean, retirement system shattered, healthcare on low levels, education not good, children go to poor schools, older folk die in bad retirement homes without enough care, and there is more talk about sport than all of these areas together.
For me thats more than stupid.

So your saying Phelps is a roid user.

That I highly doubt. And he has passed all test. Just like all the other folks from your country has done that didn’t win. LOL!

I hate a sore loser.

I don’t see evidences that Phelps is taking any advantage, in fact I find sad he was punished for smoking like a monkey, as it does not improve at all how good he swims etc, only a bad example for kids, and it is up to him to smoke whatever he wants if it makes him happy :bigsmile:

As someone said at work the other day, Phelps is so dang good that he can smoke dope and still win. Sad but true.

Says the guy who was whining about an American suspecting a Chinese athlete was doping?

Now I’m starting to think you’re just trying to stir the pot here Wink

I’m not a big Phelps fan, but look at the guy. He’s biologically designed for swimming. He has nearly the perfect attributes, which certainly gives him an advantage over most.
