Although Michael Phelps has more medals than Usain Bolt, I do not believe he is necessarily a better Olympian. The skills it takes to excel at different swimming events have much more overlap than the skills required to excel at track and field events.

Michael Phelps had a greater opportunity to win a variety of medals because of the nature of swimming. It is difficult to compare the two sports so it is also difficult to compare the two athletes but both are incredible Olympians.
