There are few people in the world that can use their physical ability to motivate others. Michael Phelps is one of those people.
His outstanding performance at the Olympic games winning 8 gold medals for swimming in the 2008 Olympics, and 6 from Previous Olympics makes him one of the true shining stars of today. The young people who Michael is motivating to meet the challenge not only from the United States, but from around the world, are truly looking at the positive. Young minds are saying if he can, so can I.
It is at a time like this when the positive outshines the negatives we read about daily in the news.
Congratulations Michael, you truly are one of the best!
