Michael Phelps Breaks World Record In The 100-Meter Butterfly

michael phelps record us nationals butterflyTotal Pro Sports – Remember that guy named Michael Phelps?  He won eight gold medals back at the 2008 Summer Games in Beijing, breaking seven world records in the process, but was then booked smokin’ some pot and bangin’ some hookers.  Well now he’s back to breaking records again and not even Sherrif Lott can stop him now.

Phelps was at the Indiana University Natatorium last night for the U.S. National Championships, and he was back to form, breaking the world record in the 100-meter butterfly.  Strangely enough, that event was the only one he competed in at Beijing without setting a world record (but he did win the gold, obviously).  His time was 50.22, breaking Ian Crocker‘s  previous mark of 50.40.  I wonder if Kellogg’s is regretting their decision to drop Phelps earlier this year.

With the victory, Phelps earned himself a spot at the World Championships in Rome later this month.  As for this victory, I can only hope they were blasting Lil’ Wayne‘s I’m A Go Getta, a tribute to Phelps himself.
