Check out this short video clip. It’s a little-known, skinny 15-year-old by the name of MIchael Phelps just moments after qualifying for his first Olympic team. This is the moment he began his Olympic journey.

NBC missed a great journalistic opportunity by not importing Mark Spitz from Detroit to Beijing as a commentator for the Michael Phelps odyssey. NBC also missed the boat by failing to show the winning time of the men’s final 4X100 Medley Relay. Or, for that matter, the all important splits.
