Olympic Swimmers
By Sharon Fabian
  

1     Do you like to swim? What do you like to do best at the swimming pool? Do you like to swim laps, play games in the water, race your friends, or float on a raft? Do you like to spend a lot of time at the pool?
 
2     Michael Phelps and Natalie Coughlin must like to spend a lot of time at the pool, but they don't spend it floating around on a raft or playing Marco Polo. Michael and Natalie are two of the best swimmers in the United States.
 
3     Michael Phelps had already set several world records. In 2008, he met his goal of beating the record set by Mark Spitz when he won seven gold medals in the 1972 Olympics. In fact, Michael Phelps won eight gold medals!
