RIO DE JANEIRO. – Tredici ori individuali: uno in più rispetto al Michael Phelps dell’antichità, Leonida da Rodi, che si fermò a quota 12. Il gigante di Baltimora, arrivato alla cifra record di 22 titoli olimpici (4 ai Giochi di Rio), ‘cannibalizza’ anche le olimpiadi classiche: Leonida, il campione dello stadion (circa 200 metri), il diaulos (circa 400 metri) e l’oplitodromia (circa 400 metri con un’armatura di 20 chili), ne vinse 12, l’ultima delle quali esattamente 2.168 anni fa, nel 152 avanti Cristo, anche lui alle sue quarte olimpiadi.
