Olympics Commentary: Phelps’ career will now end with an exclamation point
Commentary » Win in 200 IM shows even a lesser Phelps is great.

< Previous Page

Phelps has one more final individual race, Friday night in the 100-meter butterfly. He has one more relay race, Saturday night in the 4 x 100-meter individual medley relay. And that’ll be it.

But at least, after Thursday’s victory over the man who made him look so bad a few days earlier, we know the answer to the question. Phelps’ career is going to end with an exclamation point. Not a period. An exclamation point. That is how it should end. That is what happens with champions.
