An Olympic extreme

August 24, 2008

As the wonderful games draw to a close I know that there will be continuing debate for many years to come on who was the greatest Olympian of 2008 – how do you quantify and qualify for such honour – is it the number of gold medals an individual has won, is it the number of world records broken or could it be awarded to an individual who has played to the best of his or her ability and at the same time demonstrated a degree of honour and sportsmanship never before seen. We do not profess to know the answer – yes the debate will go on and we can for now savour what has been a fantastic Olympic games – so goodbye Beijing and congratulations China.

I am pleased to show you below a great compilation of one contender for the greatest Olympian ever – yes Michael Phelps certainly has every right to be considered for that title – I can only congratulate him and say I have so much respect for this truly great Olympian – thanks IMRANPIRISHAH for this great YouTube video.
