2008 Summer Olympics: Day 7

Phelps Medal Count: 7 Down 1 to Go.

Michael Phelps won his seventh gold medal of the Beijing Olympics on Saturday, edging Milorad Cavic by a fingernail, .01 of second in the 100m butterfly on Saturday at the Water Cube.

The Serbian federation filed a written protest to FINA, swimming's world governing body, contesting the result, but Serbian officials were shown video of the finish and agreed not to pursue it further.

Phelps is definetly the most exciting thing going on at the olympics! Couldn't believe the photo finish..we were all screaming at the TV and waking up the kids. Did you see the Blake tennis controversy- supposed to be a gentlemen's sport right? Did he really need that one point to ensure gold?
