MICHAEL PHELPS WINS SEVENTH GOLD IN CLOSEST RACE YET

MICHAEL PHELPS PHOTO FINISH WIN

United States Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps edged Serbia’s Milorad Cavic by just over 1/100th of a second Friday to capture his seventh gold medal of this Olympiad. Phelps’ victory in the men’s 100-meter freestyle adds to his already record setting performance.

Although it was the only event in seven where Phelps did NOT set a world record, it was perhaps his most impressive win. He was actually in seventh place after the half-way point of the race. Phelps won the race with a brilliant closing flury.

Phelps is competing in one more event at this year’s Olympics. If Phelps and the U.S. team capture gold in the relay event in which they’re favored, the swimmer will have set the record for most gold medals in one Olympics. An eight gold medal would break American swimmer Mark Spitz’s record of seven golds.

    A.D.D. Setting Free

    Dedicated to My Love Kathy

    Steady is the frame
    Chaos in my brain
    Spinning round and round
    Going up coming down
    Loud so clear in sight
    Racing to be still
    Running from the heart
    Beauty hear the beat
    What there is to know
    Flowing thru the soul
    Having full control
    Free in all to one
    Selfish does it want
    Letting go to know
    Together we then see
    Love is all so be

    One world one dream
    Beautiful scene in Beijing in it brings

    Open we see all one to be together believe
    Blend to bond joy in peace worth it seek
    Bleeds the body red in human loves beyond
    Games for children forever in fun to play
    Grow away adults learn to judge then hate
    Athletes compete handshakes to share win
    Learn with sight in give hear your heart live
    All we are in need give and receive believe

    Win we one way together we stand divided we fall
    Olympics they join us all please pray love for us all
    Peace to my brothers and sisters abroad heaven calls
