Shanghai Tang: Double Fish "Luck" Cushion Cover

Shanghai Tang: Double Fish "Luck" Cushion Cover

Not that Michael Phelps needs any luck, but he has certainly come to represent the embodiment of luck . . . and one wonders whether he has somehow inherited the genes of a fish, so at home in the water is he. Winning eight gold medals in a single Olympiad, he has now set a new standard against which all future Olympians will be measured. Yet, it seems that the real joy for Phelps is more in the swimming than in the winning. And THAT is what is so glorious about his success.
