So basically, this dude swims fast and wins. Then he swims again just as fast, just a litle longer. Then he gets in a few relays with a few other fast swimmers and wins again.
He has so many more opporunities to win a medal compared to other sports, and they are all slight variations of the same thing.
There are many other sports like basketball where you have to win in tournament style, and it only counts as one gold medal.
