Phelps Breaks Record Wins Gold

Michael Phelps has advanced out of the Olympic 200-meter freestyle preliminaries, qualifying as the fourth-fastest. Yesterday Phelps won a gold medal in the 400 individual medley.
Phelps crushed his own world record with a mark of 4 minutes, 3.84 seconds in the 400-meter individual medley.

One down, seven to go in Phelps' quest to break Mark Spitz's record of seven gold medals.
