The Munich Olympics in 1972 was marred by the death of 11 Israeli athletes. It was also the year the US swimmer Mark Spitz, then 22 years old, won 7 golds. He set a new world record in each of the seven events (the 100 m freestyle, 200 m freestyle, 100 m butterfly, 200 m butterfly, 4 x 100 m freestyle relay, 4 x 200 m freestyle relay and the 4 x 100 m medley relay).

Mark Spitz is synonymous with excellence. Doing a Mark Spitz is winning against all odds.In 2000, Mark was voted Athlete of the Century in water sports and one of the six greatest Olympians ever by Sports Illustrated. Recently, the International Olympic Committee selected Mark as one of its five athletes of the Century.
