Baltimore Ravens Stopping Their Game To Watch Michael Phelps Win His 22nd Gold Medal Is Last Night’s Must-See Moment
Last night, Michael Phelps won his 22nd Gold Medal after destroying the field in the 200-meter Individual Medley, a race that employs the four major strokes in swimming (butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke, and freestyle). Above, you can see Phelps’ celebration after breaking yet another record and becoming the first male swimmer to take home 4 consecutive Gold Medals in the 200m Individual Medley (the most coveted individual event in swimming).
Below, we see the Baltimore Ravens stopping their first football game of the year to watching hometown hero Michael Phelps take home that Gold. The Ravens and fans were so proud of Phelps they threw his race up on the jumbotron and stopped everything so that fans, players, and coaches could witness history:
If you haven’t seen Phelps’ absolutely dominating win in the 200m IM yet you can catch up on it here:
His margin of victory was almost unfathomable in the world of Swimming. Phelps will be swimming in the Men’s 100m Butterfly tonight and I could be wrong but I think this is his last event in Rio…I thought he had one more but I can’t find it on the schedule so tonight might be the last time we ever see Michael Phelps swimming in The Olympics…SET YOUR GODDAMN DVRs if you’re planning on not being at home.
