Editorial Coverage Sponsored By FINIS

ON THE COVER:

By winning six more medals in Rio, Michael Phelps’ historic totals have grown to 23 gold and 28 overall in five consecutive Olympic Games from 2000 to 2016! He even made history by becoming only the second swimmer ever to carry the American flag and lead the USA contingent at the opening ceremonies. Oh, and he also finished in a three-way tie for the silver medal in the 100 fly—another Olympic “first” for the greatest Olympian of all time who insists that these Games will be his last. (See feature, page 10, plus our 2016 Rio De Janeiro Olympics photo gallery, pages 12-28.)
