31-year-old American swimmer Michael Phelps, who quit the sport after the 2012 Olympic Games, produced a vintage performance on Sunday to claim an astonishing 19th Olympic gold medal of his career after helping his fellow American swimmers win Gold in the 4 x 100 relay event.
In front of a raucous crowd that had already witnessed three broken world records earlier Sunday night, the U.S. men earned an unexpected gold in their first Olympic relay of  Rio 2016.

Caeleb Dressel led off with a strong 48.10-second leg, before the greatest Olympian of all time- Michael Phelps gave America its lead, then Ryan Held contributed the third leg, and a strong close finish by anchor Adrian in 46.97 secured victory. . 

Phelps, who produced a stunning second leg, has now won 23 medals in total, extending his record as the most decorated Olympian of all time.

Michael Phelps was selected as the U.S. Olympic team’s flag bearer at the Games’ opening ceremony.
Congrats to him!
