Awesome Video Saturday XXXXXIV

I have really been enjoying these Olympics. I saw a post on a blog that poo-pooed the Olympics on the grounds that the writer preferred to admire people for their intellectual prowess than their physical abilities. Whatever. Watching something like this, Michael Phelps phenomenal race for his 7th gold medal, such a demonstration of tremendous perseverance and skill is truly inspiring.

This video provides some good reportage of the vent, albeit using still photos. NBC has a pretty tight leash on their videos, so this is the best I can do.
