MEMORABLE CHAMPIONS

Beijing 2008 saw memorable champions galore, but it was Michael Phelps and Usain Bolt who stole the headlines. Incredibly, American swimmer Phelps bettered Mark Spitz's achievements from Munich 1972 by one gold medal, claiming eight swimming titles. Jamaican sprinter Bolt broke both the 100m and 200m world records and claimed a third gold and world record with the Jamaica 4x100m Relay team.
