Disgruntled winner! - Michael Phelps fuming after the 400 IM

Isn't that a lovely photo? What good sports they all are. I hope Cate Campbell enjoyed her stay.

So, Michael Phelps is mad! I think this is a good sign! When Phelps gets mad, he is like Michael Jordon sticking out his tongue just before going an airborne at the free-throw line to make an aggressive dunk. Michael will now go back to the "factory" and get busy and I can't wait to see what he does!

Here is a snippet from the Washington Post: SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 16 -- It was difficult to tell who won the gold medals here Friday. American Michael Phelps, the top male swimmer at the 2004 Summer Games, stalked around, fuming at himself and thoroughly, completely, utterly disgusted with his result -- which, by the way, was an easy victory by more than a second and a half in his specialty, the 400-meter individual medley.

U.S. teammate Natalie Coughlin, meantime, the top female swimmer at the 2004 Summer Games, proclaimed herself surprised and pleased with her performance in the women's 100 final -- a race she lost for the first time here in eight years. She broke her own American record despite finishing second to a shocked 15-year-old Australian by the name of Cate Campbell who has never competed at a major international meet.
