The world's most decorated Olympian Michael Phelps tells Reuters he could not asked for a better way to end his swimming career than with victory at the London Games. (SOUNDBITE) (English) MICHAEL PHELPS, AMERICAN SWIMMER, SAYING: "I couldn't have asked for anything else. This is exactly how I wanted to do everything. I prepared myself how I wanted to and I got the results I deserve. It was definitely cool last night to end with a gold medal, a part of the 400 medley relay that we have never lost in Olympic history. That was a title that we wanted to keep and I was lucky to share the pool with the competitors that I did last night." Phelps has won twice as many Olympic titles as any other athlete in the modern Games. (SOUNDBITE) (English) MICHAEL PHELPS, AMERICAN SWIMMER, SAYING: "I think the best thing was being able to show the world that whatever you want to do you can. You know I put my mind and I put a lot of hard work into trying to become the first Michael Phelps and try to something that no one else had ever done. And I wasn't letting anything stand in my way to achieve that. And through a 20-year career I can look back and say I did everything I ever wanted." Phelps collected 22 medals after starting Olympic life as a 15-year-old at the 2000 Sydney Olympics. Deborah Lutterbeck, Reuters
