He has more opportunities to medal. There is no equivalent to a 200m Im, 4x100m IM, 100m Butterfly, 200m Butterfly in Track. Phelps not even the fastest swimmer in the world which is why he doesn't compete in the 50m or 100m freestyle....
you n*ggas is sheep and believe whatever the media tells you
If bolt dominates at Rio again and wins those categories three times in a row then there will be somewhat of an argument since Phelps has three peated in at least two events , when Bolt three peats over the same 12 year span then I can understand an argument.
Though you're also disregarding the extra categories Phelps has won in like it's easy to win all those different categories.
That's like me saying , well why doesn't Bolt have any golds in a individual 400m ??
It's not the EXACT same thing but it's a similar concept. Phelps at least has a little bit of versatility.
Phelps may not do 50m but he's won gold twice in 100m, 200m, and 400m, and three peated in two of those.
