If not the best, up there with Bonnie Blair and Eric Heiden in my book.

I'd put him behind Heiden, and Blair/Ohno. Heiden's 5 gold medals (and 5 records) in a single Olympics makes him the greatest of all time. Blair has 6 total (5 gold) which to me puts her just head of Ohno even though Ohno has 8 total medals (only 2 gold). Shawn is great, but he only does one event and has 3 gold medals.

Three in one event is pretty impressive considering he's only had four chances to win gold medals, and he has three of them.
