But for me the moment I will most likely remember out of the 2008 summer Olympiad is the good sportsmanship displayed by Dara Torres before her race and convincing win.
At the start of this semifinal, Torres was playing mom -- concerned about helping Sweden's Therese Alshammar fix her torn swimsuit.
"I tried to help her with it, tried to do it up, and it ripped again," said Torres. "I was saying, `Her suit's ripped' and waving my arms around."
Don't tell Jen - she's a "Phelps Phan".
