Michael Phelps has never been too revealing with his emotions away from the pool.
But, with just two days to go in his swimming career, there's a definite chink in the facade.
He's starting to look as human out of the water as he is superhuman in it.
"To be able to win the gold medal and be the first to threepeat, it means something," said Phelps, whose first gold in London was swimming the anchor on the 4x200 freestyle relay. "It's pretty special and something that I'm very happy for."
So a farewell games that started as a bit of a disappointment is definitely looking up. He's now won two golds and two silvers in five races—not the eight golds in eight races in China, but a more-than-fitting capper to a brilliant career that still has two more races to go: the 100 butterfly Friday and the 4x100 medley relay Saturday.
Phelps headlines another big day at the 2012 Olympics on Friday as U.S. women's soccer begins knockout play, the U.S. women's basketball team returns to action and track and field will award its first medals in London.
