  Resolved Question: What do you think about
It seems to me that Mark has every right to "pass the torch" to Mike Phelps. He said that he would have liked to have actually placed the *th gold medal around Mike's neck. What do you think about this?

  Resolved Question: Michael Phleps and mark
I asked this question last night but i want more answers because i don' t think i could get a lot of answers asking it at one o'clock in the morning. I am a fan of phelps but i did research on the 1972 olympics and i found out that in 1972, they didn't have the 50m freestyle like they do now. I'm 100% sure that Spitz would've gotten that medal(i mean c'mon, he broke every world record that was available for him to break) and gotten 8 medals too. Also, back iin the day, they had speedos and NO swimming cap like they do now.
