He said he could and he did. He planned for challenges but expected and demanded the best. A true American Hero. Someone who’s unbelievable hard work and determination has proven himself real gold.

The details as reported by SI.com are as follows:

The Americans swept the men’s relays in Beijing, with Phelps leading off in the 400 and 800 freestyle relays. Lezak anchored the 400 free to a narrow victory over France to preserve Phelps’ historic bid.

Australia took the silver in 3:30.04, and Japan earned the bronze in 3:31.18.
