Having yielded his spot on the relay team, Michael Phelps (looking right) embraces teammate Ian Crocker and other gold medal winners after the U.S. team won the men's 4 X 100-meter medley relay at the 2004 Athens Olympics on Aug. 21. As a member of the relay team - he qualified and participated in heats, but did not swim in the final - Phelps received a gold medal as well. Medal Count: 6 gold, 2 bronze = 8 total
