Mark Spitz

Before Michael Phelps and all of the technology, streamline swimsuits and workout routines to help make swimmers faster than ever, Mark Spitz was undeniably the most dominant and impressive swimmer there ever was. Spitz competed in both the 1968 and 1972 Olympic Games and walked away with 11 medals between the two. Nine of those medals were gold and seven of those golds were won in Munich in 1972. Those were his games, when he set a record by going seven-for-seven in events. Spitz won the 100m and 200m butterfly, 100m and 200m freestyle, and was a part of the 4x100m freestyle and medley relay teams and 4x200m freestyle relay teams. Four years before he won gold on both freestyle relay teams. Also in the 1968 Mexico City games he won a Silver in the 100m butterfly and bronze in the 100m freestyle. Spitz won five gold medals in the 1967 Pan American Games and 10 total golds in the Maccabiah Games.
