With his Gold Medal win in the 200 meter Individual Medley, Michael Phelps broke the record for most individual Gold medals, with 13 total. The previous record of 12 individual Golds was held for 2168 years by Leonidas of Rhodes, who won his 12th Gold medal in his fourth Olympics competition in 152 BC.
Leonidas was so dominant in his time, that his performances caused the Greeks to change their fitness and training theories and methods.

Phelps has one more semi- final event to complete and may advance to the finals, making another chance to extend his total to 13 individual Gold Medals. He now has a total of 22 Golds, counting his wins in team events.

If he was a Cop-Killer Obama would give him a Medal of Freedom.
