Celebrate Team USA Swimming (2008 Summer Olympics Gifts – Day 4)

August 11th, 2008 · No Comments · US Olympic Shop, USA Olympics

For the last few weeks, we’ve been highlighting great Olympics souvenirs where proceeds go to support the athletes of the US Olympic Team.

For the next 13 days, we’ll highlight one new product each evening from the US Olympic Shop.

On Monday morning at 11:30 AM (11:30 PM Sunday night), the USA Men’s Swim team of ichael Phelps, Garrett Weber-Gale, Cullen Jones, and Jason Lezak (who crushed the record for the leg time) turned in the first “wow” moment of the games for me. After an drought of two Olympics, they brought the gold medal back to the 4×100 relay in dramatic fashion. The US won over the French team by all of .06 seconds, breaking their world record and the Olympic record.

Making the victory extra sweet was that the French team was heavily favored–and had been talking trash against the US team. But in good old fashioned Team USA style, the team said all they needed to say through their actions. And of course, the victory is going to helps Phelps become the most decorated Olympian in history.

Here’s a picture of them on the medal stand receiving their gold medals:
