I must admit that I don't follow the sport of swimming very closely. Like everyone else in the world I've heard of Michael Phelps and his pursuit of a perfect 8 gold medals, but that's about the extent of it. Last night's 4x100m mens race, however, may have changed all that. This was the one race where Phelps' perfect run was thought to be in jeopardy. The French team, whose trash-talking only fueled the Americans' fire, was heavily favored and appeared to have the race in the bag until the final leg. You just gotta see how this race ended.

What a finish. Let's hope Phelps can stay focused and win the remaining 6 golds.
