Michael Phelps Wins His 17th Olympic Gold Medal in the 100m Fly

Michael Phelps won gold in his final individual race, the 100m butterfly. It was his 17th career gold medal and his record 21st Olympic medal. This was his third-straight gold in the event. He has one more relay tomorrow before his retirement.

It was an incredible finish, as he was not even in the medals after the first turn.

Missy Franklin also won her third-gold medal of the London Games, setting a world record time in the 200m backstroke. She was born in 1995.
