EVENT: 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing
COMPLEX SAYS: Led by Michael Phelps, who set an Olympic record with eight gold medals at that year's games, the U.S. swim came in first on the medal count with 31 total medals including 12 gold. The team's biggest highlight came here in the 4x100 meter freestyle relay, as Jason Lezak came back to take the lead from France's Alain Bernard in the final 25 meters. No doping here, well kinda, but the fact that Phelps likes to spark up kush once in a while just makes this accomplishment even more badass. #justsayin'
