    What is more Impressive; Micheal Phelps the fastest man in the water or Usain Bolt the fastest man on land.. I saw this on sportsnet the other day and Usain Bolt won the poll.. just wanted to see what you guys think.

    They're both absolutely amazing at what they do, I have to say that Usain Bolt is more amazing though, he broke 2 world records this olympics that I thought wouldn't be broken for years, guess I was wrong. I was definitely expecting phelps to break some serious records (not 8 golds, nobody could have predicted that.

    Usain Bolt

    100m (9.69)
    200m (19.30)

    too bad he doesn't want to do the 400m though

    iaaf.org - Bolt - 100, 200 . . . 400m?

    sort of surprising, but if I were him then I'd be trying to pack those records in a bit before moving on.

    Phelps, and the way he did it was just beyond impressive.

    Phelps. Anyone who's just so damn good, they think he's a genetic experiment, and the Chinese have said this, is the best.

    What Phelps did impresses me a lot more. Winning two golds in track is not unheard of. Winning eight golds hasn't been done before in any sport...until Phelps. The number and variety of races Phelps competed in is just crazy.

    What Usain Bolt did was amazing. But there's no doubt in my opinion that what Michael Phelps did is way more impressive. The endurance you have to have to swim all those times, it's unbelievable.

    So both atheletes had great accomplishments during the 2008 Summer Olympics, but what Phelps did is more impressive then what Bolt did.
