Big Splash...

From an old Onion piece:
"ORLANDO—Fourteen-time Olympic gold medalist and SeaWorld main attraction Michael Phelps returned to his seven-million-gallon water tank Wednesday to resume his normal schedule of performing in six shows a day for marine park crowds every day of the week."
Which is doubly funny because here we are, two whole Olympiads later, and if Michael Phelps were a country, he'd be in 13th place for gold medals in Rio, just ahead of Spain and only two golds behind Texas.

Also, a bonus .gif of Katie Ledecky in the most dominating athletic performance since the '73 Belmont Stakes:
