In an Olympic Games that has been filled with excitement, controversy, outrage and yes, even a little humour, PlayHugeLottos.com takes a look at some world record moments from London 2012.
The London Olympics 2012 has been an amazing event with many great moments and many new world records. Although we tend to focus on spectacular lottery achievements around the world we are not averse to crediting the achievements of the best athletes as well.
Incredible Olympic Moments
The most incredible records were set by American swimmer Michael Phelps. Not only has he broken many world records, but his most amazing achievement must be his world record for most Olympic Gold medals ever won. Phelps has got 22 Olympic medals in total - 19 of them are Gold. That is double of the next highest record.
Michael Phelps goes for Gold...again...
Another swimmer made quite an impression when beating Michael Phelps to the Gold medal in the 200 meter Butterfly event. South African Chad Le Clos surprised everyone by beating Michael Phelps with a time of 1 minute and 52.96 seconds, 0.05secs ahead of Phelps, with Japan's Takeshi Matsuda as third.
428 medals have been won by athletes from 58 countries so far. A total of 85 Olympic records have been set, including 32 world records. Amazing and inspirational for the world to watch.
