At the end of the event, Phelps threw his gold medal in the crowd. People were pleased. Cheers for this, and congratulations USA for having produced such a champion.

My understanding is that it wasn't so much that they dumped him per se, but rather that it was the end of his contract and therefore an easy time to let him go. I think he has done and will do OK.

yeah because god forbid that a company would decide that their spokes-people should be accountable for their behavior.

It was a great swim. However, NOT the fastest time of 2009. Jason Lezak swam a 47 at the 2009 Janet Evans Invitational.

Oops, I thought the title read, fastest time in 2009. Now I see it says, HIS fastest time in 2009. Still very fast.
