PHOTOS: Michael Phelps' Historic Olympic Run

Phelps, a Towson native, ended the 2012 Summer Olympics as the most decorated Olympian of all time.

The numbers say it all: 22 medals, 18 gold. 

Michael Phelps, 27, is the greatest Olympian of all time, as his trophy says.

Better than even some nations, as the New York Times put it on Aug. 4: "Phelps’s 22 medals are a mind-boggling total. If he were a country, he would rank in the top 60 in modern Olympic history. His 18 golds would put him No. 36, just ahead of Argentina."

If you weren't keeping a scorecard at home of the Towson swimmer who learned his skills at North Baltimore's , the Huffington Post prepared one for you:
