Michael Phelps Has More Olympic Medals Than Anyone Ever

Now this is just greedy, people.

Swimmer Michael Phelps won his 19th Olympic medal (a gold, naturally) during the 4x200-meter relay today, making him the Olympian with the most medals ever. Soviet gymnast Larissa Latynina held the record for decades with 18 medals.

Phelps also won his 18th medal on July 31, taking the silver in the 200-meter butterfly. The athlete's additional records include the most Olympic gold medals (15) and gold medals in individual events (9) of any competitor.

The dude is just a lean, mean winning machine.
