both are amazing athletes

and the medal argument is stupid, if there were more short distance sprinting events then bolt would have loads of golds perhaps.

^^bolt killed the 100m, 80 percent through the race he was slowing down and and pumping his chest, and for the 8 gold medals, if bolt ran 8 times he would have eight aswell, so to tell the truth i think bolt is a better athlete because no one came even close, while phelps barley won some(not taking away anything from him)

The race where Bolt did the chest pump/raise his hands BEFORE the race was even over made me lose all respect for him. Sure, he's fast but it's the Olympics and you're supposed to come off as some sort of role model not as an egotistical jerk who could have done even better if had not done that.

Both Phelps and Bolt are beasts in their respective sports. The way I see it, Phelps had the best training, coaches and equipment that money could buy. Bolt on the other hand never had that luxury, he had to get himself on the international stage before he could even be at Phelp's level. They both had the backing of their respective countries but Jamaica is no where near America in terms money spent on athletes. It is really tough to call and I would side with Bolt, but Phelps did dominate to win 8 Gold Medals, he also swam 17 times to get them.

both are awesome athletes, but Phelps is the man plus swimming takes alot more training cuz any nig can run, but I like Bolt's name & yeah he totally lost alot of respect from ppl at the end of that race by bragging.

i love how you relate an olympic sport to something street.

either way its relative. if i were phelps and someone was chasing me in the pool, i would leave them in the dust.

Phelps competed in 4 different strokes. Bolt is good at running. In my book i know which one is harder.

Bolt. He's just as dominant as Phelps (mark my words, he'll repeat his performances here and then some come the London Olympics) and he wins with swag. Then again, I'm sick to death of the Phelps media blitz so I guess that part of me is talking.

Also, those of you saying swimming is harder than running haven't done much of the latter on a high level apparently.

Both are legendary, but what Bolt did is just insane. The 200 WR was considered nearly unbeatable a week ago now he beat it like it was nothing. just sick.

shut the fuck up. if you were beyond peer in your sport, you would celebrate it too. im so sick of hearing people say "oh, i've lost respect for him ever since he did that" like their respect is what motivates that person to be great. get fucking real, a week ago, you didnt even know who dude was, now you are on a fucking internet message board saying you've lost respect for him? fuck you. dont try to act all high and mighty because its "the olympics" what the fuck do you think the olympics is for? its so other countries can boast about their fucking accomplishments. He is the best sprinter in the world. you expect him to not celebrate and showboat? it's amazing to me how people think professional athletes are supposed to be the most humble motherfuckers ever, like if they were in the same position they wouldnt gloat just as much. probably more. hypocritical assholes. and dont feed me that "he's supposed to be a role model" line of garbage either. fuck that. first, he is MAN. second, he is an ATHLETE. and on top of that, he is better at what he does than anyone else in the world. we should be complaining that he doesnt celebrate LONG ENOUGH. fucking cunts.
