File- In this Aug. 1, 2009, file photo Zimbabwe's Kirsty Coventry holds the gold medal she won in the final of the women's 200-meter backstroke, at the FINA Swimming World Championships in Rome. Like Michael Phelps, Coventry is going to the Olympics for the fifth and final time and she’s swimming for one more little slice of history in the Rio de Janeiro pool. Phelps has the all-time Olympic record with his medal haul of 22, but Coventry needs one more podium finish at her last Olympics to be the first female swimmer to win eight individual medals.
