by at . Comments

It's a good day to be an American.

Within hours of the U.S. Gymnastics Team taking home the Gold Medal by a very wide margin, Michael Phelps set the record for most times on the Olympic podium.

The iconic athlete teamed with Ryan Lochte, Ricky Berens, and Conor Dwyer to take first place in the 4x200m Freestyle Relay this afternoon, giving Phelps 19 total medals over three Olympics, the most of any athlete in the history of the Games.

In addition to the all-time Olympic medal record, Phelps holds the mark for most Gold Olympic medals (15) and the record for most Golds in individual events (9).

We send Phelps our hearty congratulations and we say: USA! USA!
