Just when you thought the rest of the Olympics would be a snooze after Michael Phleps finished his vision quest with eight gold medals on Sunday, along comes Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt. After setting a world record in the 100 over the weekend, Bolt came back on Wednesday and broke Michael Johnson's 12-year-old record in the 200 with a remarkable time of 19.30 seconds. Bolt became the first man to pull off the 100-200 sweep since Carl Lewis in 1984.

Which brings us to the impossible question: which feat was more impressive? Is it the fastest man in water or on land? I'd give Phelps the edge because of the pressure, number of events and fashion in which in won his eight golds. But Bolt isn't far behind.

What's your take?
