Phelps managed to silence his critics on Sunday night when he helped USA win the Men’s 4x100m Freestyle Relay. They were trailing after the first 100m, but Phelps gave them a sizable lead after 200m, which was enough to keep their opponents at bay en route to the gold medal finish.
Phelps, who has won a total of 23 Olympic medals across four Summer Games, said before the event started that he is inspired to do good in Rio. He admitted that it could be his final Olympic stint and he wants his family to be proud of him.
“My potential last Olympics,” Phelps told Washington Post. “Just so you guys don’t beat me to death if I come back, I’m just going to say that. To have him [first-born baby] watch the potential last races of my career is something I look forward to being able to share with him.”
