At -1800 odds to win the 200m Individual swimming event starting at 10:03 pm EST, Michael Phelps is the closest thing to a "lock" to win this event and break a record for most gold medals won.

Monday night, Phelps received his ninth Olympic gold of his career, tying him for most ever with American swimmer Mark Spitz and U.S. track star Carl Lewis. He has a chance to win two more gold medals Wednesday morning (Tuesday night in the States) and break the previous record.

"The Olympics have been around for so many years, it's a pretty amazing accomplishment," Phelps said. "It's definitely an honor. I've been able to spend some time with Carl Lewis, and traded a few words with Spitz here and there."

U.S. swimmers Phelps, Natalie Coughlin and Aaron Peirsol won three of the four finals Monday night.

"I couldn't ask for anything else so far," Phelps said. "My first three medal races, we've done everything I've wanted to do."
