A completely unoriginal thought re: Michael Phelps

Holy crap. How does he do that? These are the best swimmers from all over the world*, and he blows past them like they're standing still. And that 4x200m relay? That wasn't just Phelps; every swimmer on the US team was fantastic. It boggles the mind.

* Well, not really; swimming is dominated by the Western countries, Russia, and Japan, with an increasingly strong showing by China. There's no real representation from Latin America, Africa, and most of Asia. Pools are expensive.

Yeah, he's totally remarkable. It's amazing how effortless he makes it look, while being so incredibly far ahead of everyone else. I really hope there's no drogas involved.
