Michael Phelps is the GOAT. There’s no other way to put it. And there’s no better testament to his GOATness than his insane collection of bling.
Homie’s got 25 Olympic medals — 21 of them gold. Not only is that more than any other Olympian, that’s more medals than 91 countries and more golds than 108 countries.
From For The Win:
But Phelps has also won more medals than most countries competing in the Olympics. If you break down the all-time summer Olympics medal counts of every nation, Phelps has won more than 91 countries ever have, including Portugal, Peru, Singapore, Serbia, and 87 others (this count takes into account independent Olympic participants and mixed teams).
But the staggering stats continue. Phelps has won more gold medals than 108 countries, including Austria, Argentina, the Czech Republic, and Mexico (again, as well as independent Olympic participants and mixed teams).
Suck it, world. Suck Michael’s fat, cupping-hickey-covered gonads.
The guy is an absolute freak. He’s dug up more gold for the U.S. than a Chinaman in the Wild West. He’s the greatest Olympian ever and he wasn’t even a sports-slave who was robbed of a childhood and forced to compete like most of those ‘roided up Commies.
Matter of fact, the United States’ no sports-slave policy has fared us pretty well overall. We’ve won more golds in all of the summer olympics combined than any other nation, and so far it looks like we’ll only expand on that lead after Rio (I don’t know where we stand on winter olympics but I’m not even going to google it because no one cares about the winter olympics unless it’s snowboarding or a luger flies out of the chute and catches a pillar).
Athletes from the United States have won 27 medals overall so far in Rio. The U.S. has won 2,399 medals over the course of all the summer Olympics the nation has ever competed in, 977 of them gold. That’s more than any other country in the world.
Take notes, world. Fucking losers..
