Michael Phelps now has more medals than 148 countries

Michael Phelps now has more medals than 148 countries

Shortly after Michael’s Phelps supposedly "disastrous" defeat in the 200m butterfly to South Africa’s Chad le Clos today, he collected his 15th gold in 800-meter freestyle, giving him a record 19 total career medals.

Phelps has now not only performed every other athlete in the history of the games, but many entire countries.  Of the 205 countries that participate in the Olympics, 148 have fewer than 19 medals. Not too shabby.
