Most worthy Olympians in Beijing Olympic

Michael Phelps smiles after his victory in the 100m Butterfly final.
(BEIJING, August 16) -- American Michael Phelps won his eighth gold on Saturday in the Men's 100m Butterfly final at the National Aquatics Center, to surpass Mark Spitz (USA) 's record of 7 gold medals at a summer Olympic Games. But Phelps had to survive a big scare from unheralded Serbian Milorad Cavic to do it. Phelps won in an Olympic record time of 50.58, to take his gold medal tally to seven, but by the slimmest of margins - 0.01 seconds. He had a huge battle on his hands after Cavic touched first on the 50m mark at 0.09sec under the world record. Phelps and Cavic battled it out in the last 50m. A monumental upset looked to be approaching - until Phelps dug deep and out-touched Cavic on the wall.
Gold medalist Kirsty Coventry of Zimbabwe waves from the podium.
After winning three silver medals at the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games, Kirsty Coventry of Zimbabwe finally won gold in the Women's 200m Backstroke and she smashed the world record in a time of 2:05.24.
World record holder Margaret Hoelzer of the United States was unable to reel in Coventry and finished with the silver in 2:06.23. Nakamura Reiko of Japan won the bronze medal in an Asian record time of 2:07.13, at 1.89 behind the gold medal winner.
These two figures mentioned above are real winner. Phelps is the winner, who has all kind of facilities. Everything needed is with us, but what about the kirsty has? Nothing, because she is "White" among the "Black" majority Zimbabwe. The autocratic ruler of Zimbabwe "Robert Mugabwe" destroyed all the harmony and integrity of the country and suppressed minority White people. Once one the richest country in Africa, Zimbabwe, lost all its infrastructure and prosperity. In this difficult moments also, the discriminated Kristy won 1 Gold and three Silver medals for her Country "Zimbabwe". So, the country is always above than everything irrespective of how bad are its rulers to them. This is the example set by Kirsty. My salutation goes to her for this. You are greater than all Olympians, you are not less than Phelps and anyone!
