breaking the 2000 year Olympic record:

Michael Phelps has the chance to break a 2,000-year-old Olympic record by surpassing the 12 individual titles won by Leonidas of Rhodes....
Leonidas of Rhodes competed in four successive Olympiads in 164BC, 160BC, 156BC and 152BC and in each of these he won three different foot races.

and back then, their Olympic uniform was designed by mother Nature...
