Michael Phelps is the king of kings.

The American swimming superstar won his first gold medal in the London Olympics Tuesday night — finishing first in the 4×200-meter freestyle race — but more importantly, it marked the 19th Olympic medal of his career (15th gold medal), giving him the record for the most Olympic medals ever!

“It has been a pretty amazing career,” the 27-year-old Baltimore native said, “but we still have a couple races to go.”

Fellow swimmer Ryan Lochte called his peer “one of the toughest racers and one of the best swimmers ever to live … it’s pretty awesome.”

The hunky Phelps, who won a record-eight gold medals during an epic run at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, can pad his record with medals in his three remaining events over the next four days: the 200 individual medley, the 100 butterfly and the 4×100 medley relay.
