The benevolent one 

He's already the king of these Olympics, but Michael Phelps has shown his generosity by surrendering his place in his final relay to allow Ian Crocker a chance to redeem himself. With only this final race to go, Phelps certainly has those 8 projected medals in the bag -- 6 of which will be gold. Amazing. If not for Crocker's horrid performance in the 200 relay, Phelps would have equalled Mark Spitz's mark of 7 golds in a single games and would've been splashing around in $1 million courtesy of Speedo. Another reason why his decision to let Crocker have his spot in the 400 relay speaks volumes of Phelps' character.
