Michael Phelps Olympic gold medal heart hand

Michael Phelps is the winningest Olympic athlete in history. Phelps won his 19th gold medal while leading his team to victory in the 400 freestyle relay. He even managed to stand out during award ceremony. His teammates: Nathan Adrian, Ryan Held and Caeleb Dressel; held their heads and hands high but Phelps seemed to be grasping at his rib cage. The right hand is held over the heart when saluting the flag such as in the Pledge of Allegiance. Phelps either doesn’t know how to salute the flag or he has a huge heart, which wouldn’t be surprising given his superhuman performance. Then again, maybe his arm is just tired from holding all those medals.
