michael phelps wins first beijing gold

Swimming superstar Michael Phelps has taken home his first gold medal in the 400-meter individual medley at the summer games in Beijing, setting a new world record and earning his seventh career gold.

Join us in congratulating Phelps, along with American bronze medalist Ryan Lochte.

Phelps was cheered on in Beijing by President Bush and First Lady Laura Bush, as well as their daughter Barbara and former President George H.W. Bush.

Phelps will compete again later today, and you can catch it live on NBC, which is devoting most of its airtime to the 2008 Olympic games.

Cheer on Phelps and the rest of Team USA as they make Olympic history in China.  Go USA!
