Michael Phelps/Quotes
If you want to be the best, you have to do things that other people aren't willing to do.
You can't put a limit on anything. The more you dream, the farther you get.

I read through it twice, and still didn't see what unusual physical characteristics made him such a good swimmer. I'm not sure how I missed that.
