While Michael Phelps does hold the record for most gold medals earned, he is not the overall highest medal holder. Larissa Latynina, of the Soviet Union holds the record for most medals won, counting nine gold, five silver, and four bronze, which gives her a total of 18 medals ever won in the Olympics.
