Phelps and our sporting obsession.

Well done, more Olympic medals than anyone. But when it comes to sport, and I love sport, these achievements are beyond any normal/average persons capacity. The image created is impossible to match, maybe we need a competition for the most normal average person. I dare say that we are now watching a show of drug cheats, over trained, somewhat  mad, biological anomalies competing. This is a bit unfair but why do we place such emphasis on these people when we lack this level of support to science and the creative industries which really do help communities on a daily basis.
