Mark Andrew Spitz (born February 10, 1950) is an American swimmer and nine-time Olympic champion. He was the most successful athlete at the Summer Olympics in Munich, winning seven gold medals, each in world-record time.

Interesting Fact

At the Olympics in Munich, Spitz was set to succeed Michael Wenden in the men's 100-meter freestyle as the Olympic champion and world-record holder. He had already won five gold medals and was reluctant to swim the race, fearing that he would not win the gold medal. The trainer of the US team told him that if he leaves the race now then someone else would become the fastest swimmer in the world in his place. Spitz took his advice and broke Wenden's world record by a second.
