How many GOld Medals and World Records can one guy set at one Olypics? So far I’ve lost count, but i do know for every Gold he grabs he smashes the competition and the world record at the same time. This man is like a dolphin in the pool. His times are insane and the way he jus lays back then sets his attack on his opponents and just blows by them in the pool. Hopefully he will reach his goal of 8 Golds and match that with 8 New World Records..
