AND FOR MORE ON WHAT'S HAPPENING IN THE POOL, TAKE A LOOK WHO WE'RE JOINED BY NOW. SUMMER SANDERS, LIVE IN LONDON. SUMMER, SO MUCH TO GET TO. BUT YOU CANNOT START WITHOUT THE HISTORY WE SAW YESTERDAY. 19 INDIVIDUAL MEDALS AND COUNTING, NOW, FOR MICHAEL PHELPS. THIS IS SOMEONE YOU'VE KNOWN AND SEEN FOR A LONG TIME. CAN YOU -- CAN YOU BOIL IT ALL DOWN FOR US, WHAT THAT WAS LIKE WHEN HE DID IT? YOU KNOW, IT'S INTERESTING YOU BRING THAT UP. THE FIRST TIME I INTERVIEWED HIM WAS IN 2000. AND HE WAS 15 YEARS OLD. AND HE SURPRISED US THERE. WE KNEW SOMETHING SPECIAL WAS HAPPENING. IT'S AMAZING TO ME. AND THE FIRST THING I THINK EVERYONE THINKS OF, IS WHERE IN THE WORLD IS HE GOING TO DISPLAY THOSE 19 MEDALS? I, FOR A LONG TIME, HAVE CALLED HIM THE GREATEST OLYMPIAN OF ALL-TIME BECAUSE OF THE EIGHT GOLDS IN BEIJING. I THINK THAT'S EXTRAORDINARY. AN UNBELIEVABLY GRUELING SCHEDULE. BUT TO HAVE THE MOST MEDALS OF ANY OLYMPIAN FROM ANY COUNTRY, CERTAINLY PUTS HIM IN AN EVEN BIGGER CATEGORY. IF THERE WAS A GREATER WORD THAN GREATEST, HE HAS THAT. OF COURSE, AS A FORMER OLYMPIAN YOURSELF AND DECORATED, YOU KNOW. I WANT TO TALK ABOUT THE WOMEN. TO BE CALLED PHELPSIAN NOW IS ARGUABLY THE GREATEST COMPLIMENT YOU CAN LEND SOMEONE. AND MISSY FRANKLIN IS STARTING TO PUT HER STAMP FOR THE AMERICAN WOMEN. AND UPS AND DOWNS. SHE DOESN'T GET TO THE PODIUM AS ALLISON SCHMITT DOMINATES IN THE 200 FREE. I KNOW. AND IT'S HARD FOR ME TO SAY THAT'S A DISAPPOINTING RACE FOR HER. BUT IT'S FOCUS ON THE POSITIVE. ALLISON SCHMITT. SHE CAME TO WIN. THERE WAS NO QUESTION. AND I HAVEN'T SEEN HER SWIM LIKE THAT FOR A WHILE. I HAVE TO THINK THAT SHE TOOK HER RACE AND SHE WANTED THAT GOLD. MY MOM HAD SAID IT, TOO, WHEN I WAS LITTLE. THE PERSON WHO WINS WANTS IT THE MOST. YOU COULD TELL THAT ALLISON DID. AND GO BACK TO MISSY'S 100 BACKSTROKE. THAT DOUBLE SHE HAD LAST NIGHT WAS EXTRAORDINARY. FOR HER TO GET A GOLD IN THE 100 BACKSTROKE IS EXTRAORDINARY. SUMMER, HE'S 27 YEARS OLD. DOES MICHAEL PHELPS RETURN IN FOUR YEARS? NO. HE SAID NO. BUT THEN AGAIN, HE SAID HE WOULDN'T SWIM IN THE 400 I.M. BUT HE SWAM IT HERE. AND FOUR MORE RACES TO GO, INCLUDING THE 200 I.M. MATCH-UP WITH RYAN LOCHTE. SUMMER, WE APPRECIATE THE TIME.
