Bet you that 100 and 200 record stand for at least 25 years. Phelps ain't as dominant as Bolt. He just has more events to participate in. That's like track and field saying we are now adding a 125m, 150m, 250m, and 300m race.
Phelps just more opportunity to win and that's all. No doubt Bolt could run another Olympics and win if he wanted. Especially in the 200m.
The question isn't who is the most dominant it's who's the better Olympian. Phelps is swimming four different techniques while being the best in the world. Not just doing the same race at two different distances like Bolt is. Now if Bolt was Running the 100,200, hurdles and long jumping then we could put in perspective the kinda shit Phelps is doing. Bolt is the fastest nigga in the world at two distances but Phelps has been the best in the world at two distances but at four different swimming styles, and he has done it for 16 years. If Bolt comes back for a fourth Olympics and wins multi golds then i will change my vote. Until then its Phelps>Bolt.
Btw if it wasn't for the Boycott in 1980 Carl Lewis would have more gold than Bolt. As it stands they both have 9 gold medals. I only say that to show that Bolt has company in his sport when it comes to greatness. Nobody is coming close to 23 that Phelps has. The question isn't who is the most dominant it's who's the better Olympian.
