    The Baltimore Bullet
    At the 2000 Sydney games, Phelps became the youngest American male swimmer to
    compete at the Olympics in 68 years. He was 15 years old. He failed to medal,
    finishing fifth in the 200m Butterfly.

    So Close
    In the 4 x 100 Freestyle Relay, Phelps and the Americans came in third to the
    South Africans, who celebrate their win in the photo above. Had he won seven
    golds in Athens, Phelps would have been eligible for a $1 million bonus from his
    sponsor Speedo, an offer that now extends to the Beijing Games.

    Making a Splash
    Phelps would describe himself as a fish out of water on land, but he may be the
    greatest Olympic athlete of all time.

    Making History
    Phelps became the first man to win eight gold medals at the same Olympics when
    the US team won the men's 4x100m medley relay final in a new world record time.
