BACK IN THE U.S.S.R.   So by now we know that U.S. swimmer Michael Phelps has broken the all-time Olympics record for most medals ever, with 19 (as of yesterday — Phelps has three more events to go at the summer games in London).  But many members of the media failed to point out exactly whose record Phelps had broken: it belonged to Russian gymnast Larisa Latynina, who won 18 medals between 1956 and 1964.  She was in attendance during Phelps’s record-smashing performance on Tuesday.  ”Latynina joked in recent weeks that it was time for a man to be able to do what a woman had done long ago,” wrote the New York Times.  ”And that it was too bad Phelps was not Russian.”  (Photo: AP via the Times)

And no one knows this because NBC is just horrible at covering the Olympics.
