An Absolutely Amazing Scene

(Jonathan Newton/The Washington Post)

After winning his eighth gold medal of the Beijing Games, Michael Phelps climbed into the photographers' pit to get to his mom and sisters for a true moment.

I didn't want to get caught in the pack, so I went around to the back of the group and held my camera as high as I could. This is my favorite Michael Phelps picture of these Games.
