Who is the person who has won the most olympic medals who is still living?
Michael Phelps has 22 career Olympic medals (18 of which are gold) in swimming. The second most awarded Olympic medalist is Larisa Latynina (gymnastics), with 18 (9 gold). Latynina still holds the record for most Olympic medals in individual events (14 to Phelps' 13). However, Phelps has already qualified for the 2016 Olympics and stands a reasonable chance to at earn at least a bronze in more than one individual event there; while Latynina (who was born in 1934) is still living, it's unlikely that she will compete in any future Olympiads.
