Olympic Day #6

Musings from the OlyMADMen

So Michael Phelps has now won 19 Olympic medals, giving him the most medals of any Olympic athlete, bettering the long-standing record set by Soviet gymnast Larysa Latynina in 1964. Does this make him the greatest Olympian of all-time? As anyone who has watched NBC’s coverage of the 2012 Olympics and the earlier USA Olympic Trials, they consider his full name to be Michael Phelpsthegreatestolympianofalltime.

But is he? When one considers only the statistical number, yes, he is. But the story is much deeper than that. If you look at the list of most medals won by Olympians, the list is dominated by swimmers and gymnasts, and there is a simple reason. They compete in the most events of any Olympian. There are 33 athletes who have won 10 or more Olympic medals, 29 at the Summer Olympics. Of these13 are gymnasts and 8 are swimmers.

Phelps competed in 8 events in 2004 and 2008. Modern pentathletes can only compete in one event at each Olympics, as is true with all team sport athletes. Teresa Edwards won 5 medals and 4 golds with USA basketball and is not near the top of any list of most medals won by Olympians overall. Does that make her a lesser Olympian? Hard to argue that.

When Phelps won his 8 gold medals in Beijing, Mark Spitz pointed out that there was no 50 metre freestyle in 1972 when he won 7 gold medals. Spitz was more a sprinter than Phelps and he said he thinks he would have won that gold medal, as well, giving him 8, although that is of course, speculative. If one examines the swimming program over the years, there has been significant inflation in the number of events. In 1960 there were 8 men’s swimming events and only 7 for women, while there are now 17 events for both men and women – a lot more to choose from. Couldn’t Johnny Weissmuller have won a few more events back in the 1920s if there were more to choose from? And it is hard to compare current-day Olympians from the days of the simon-pure amateurs, who had difficulty competing in multiple Olympics, because they had to go and earn a living, which they could not do from their sport.

In addition, Phelps has won 8 of his medals in relays. He has won 11 individual medals at the Olympics, but that trails Latynina with 14, and Soviet male gymnast Nikolay Andrianov with 12. Should the greatest Olympian list only consider medals won in individual events? Well, no, as that would eliminate tremendous Olympians like Teresa Edwards, or Dhyan Chand (IND) in men’s hockey or Dezső Gyarmati (HUN) or Manuel Estiarte (ESP) in men’s water polo, considered the greatest of all-time in their sports. There must be something to be said for doing it in individual events or an individual sport, for doing it all by yourself. Jenny Thompson won 12 medals in swimming for the USA, but never won an individual gold medal, and it would be difficult to choose her as the greatest ever Olympian with that omission on her resume.

So who is the GOAT Olympian – the greatest of all-time. I vote for somebody who competed only in 4 Olympic events, and won them all. At the 1956, 1960, 1964 and 1968 Olympics, Al Oerter won the discus throw. He never lost. So how can somebody with only 4 gold medals, and only 4 medals in all be considered the greatest?

Well, start with the fact that he never lost. Consider that he had only 1 possible event. Had there been a team discus event (which has never been held at the Olympics), or a both-hands discus throw (which was held in 1912), or a Greek-style discus throw (held in 1906 and 1908), or perhaps, in addition to the 2 kg. discus, there was a 1 kg. discus, or a 1.5 and 2.5 kg. discus event, it is easy to envision Oerter winning all of those events as well. And if there was a team discus event in all those permutations, you’re getting an awful lot of potential gold medals for Oerter.

But would he have done it? Consider that this is a man who was not considered a gold medal threat at the 1956 Olympics, who was not favored in 1968, and although an early year favorite in 1964, injured his neck and ribs badly before the Olympic Games, and was lucky to compete. Only in 1960 was he a clear favorite at the Olympics. This is a man who set his own personal best to win each of his Olympic titles. This is a man who never won the US Olympic Trials. A man of whom a fellow competitor, a very strong man himself, said he was the strongest man he had ever known, physically and mentally, and spoke of him by describing his “freight-train right arm.” Al Oerter also knew something about the Olympics, saying, “There is no job, no amount of power, no amount of money, to approach the Olympic experience.”

In 1964 at Tokyo, he competed with a neck brace and his ribs heavily taped, after tearing rib cartilage in practice before the Olympics. He trailed going into the 5th round of throws, when he pulled off the brace, ripped off the tape, and later said he put everything he had into that throw, knowing he had only one throw left in his body. He set an Olympic record, set a personal best, and won the gold medal, passing his final throw. Speaking of that day, 15 years later, he commented, “I think of that day even now, and I still hurt.” Oerter also said, when asked why he did that, “These are the Olympics. You die for them.”

Michael Phelps is a once-in-a-lifetime athlete, an incredible inspiration, and it is hard to argue that is not the greatest Olympian of all-time.

But I just did it.

To me, Al Oerter is the GOAT at the Olympics.

Yesterday at the Olympics


  • Michael Phelps finished 2nd in the 200 butterfly to win his 18th Olympic medal, giving him 14 golds, 2 silvers, and 2 bronze medals. This tied him with Soviet gymnast Larysa Latynina for the most medals ever won by an Olympic athlete.

  • The United States’ men won the 4x200 freestyle relay gold medal in dominating fashion, winning by 3.07 seconds over France, with Michael Phelps swimming the anchor leg, to give him his 19th Olympic medal, breaking Latynina’s record. This was the 16th victory in this event for the USA, and the third consecutive – the USA won 7 consecutive from 1948-1976.

  • Vince Hancock becomes the first American man to defend his gold medal in skeet shooting

  • He becomes the 2nd American to defend a gold medal in shooting in an individual event, after Gary Anderson in free rifle (no longer on the program) in 1964-68

  • He becomes the 12th Olympic shooter, from any nation, to defend his gold medal in an individual shooting event.

  • He becomes the 2nd American man to win a skeet shooting gold medal, after Matthew Dryke in 1984.

  • Vince Hancock and Kim Rhode won the men’s and women’s skeet gold medals, the first time that event has been swept by members of the same nation.

  • This is the fourth time in Olympic shooting that men and women of the same nation have won gold in the same event, after this was done three times by China, in 2004 Air Rifle, in 2008 Air Pistol, and in 2008 Small-Bore Rifle, 3 Positions.




  • Allison Schmitt won a gold medal in the women’s 200 freestyle, giving her her 3rd Olympic medal of the London Olympics, and a complete set, after a silver in the 400 freestyle, and a bronze in the 4x100 free relay. This made her the 16th American swimmer to win a gold, silver, and bronze medal at one Olympics (hitting for the Olympic cycle), something never achieved by Michael Phelps, although Mark Spitz did do it in 1968. Natalie Coughlin did it twice – in 2004 and 2008.




  • The USA women’s gymnastics team won the team all-around. This has only occurred before in 1996. They have previously won three silver medals (1984, 2004, 2008) and three bronze medals (1948, 1992, 2000).

  • The USA won by 5.066 points, the 3rd most dominant margin ever in the event, but really the most dominant victory in the modern era (post-Nadia) of gymnastics. Margins have been as follows as in this event for the winners:

1936 GER 2.900

  • Caitlin Leverenz won a bronze medal in the women’s 200 IM. This is the 10th medal by a USA Olympian in this event, with two golds – Claudia Kolb in 1968 and Tracy Caulkins in 1984. It was the 5th bronze medal for us in this event.




  • USA women’s football team defeated the DPR Korea 1-0, with the lone goal scored by Abby Wambach. This gives her 7 goals in Olympic competition, the most ever by a USA women, trailed now by Tiffany Milbrett and Mia Hamm, with 5. This moves her into 4th place on the all-time scoring list for women’s Olympic football.




  • The USA women defeated Argentina in field hockey, 1-0. This is the first time the USA has defeated Argentina in women’s field hockey at the Olympics, in 5 matches. Here are the scores of their 4 previous matches at the Olympics.
