phelps finish

I wanted to wait until Michael wins all of his gold medals in the Olympics, but I just couldn’t pass up posting this Sports Illustrated photo finish from last night’s 100 meter butterfly race. By taking one extra stroke while the other guy (Cavic) is coasting in, Phelps (left) pushed ahead and won by 1/100th of one second. Look at their heads, Michael’s in down, he is focused and determined. His opponent has his head up, slowing himself down. The best sports finish I have ever seen.

Go Phelps. Go USA!
