Million Dollar Michael's Massive Magnificent Motions

On average, every swim stroke Michael Phelps takes gets him 2 meters down the pool. Michael competed in 8 separate events during the 2008 Olympics in Beijing:

  • 400 meter individual medley
  • 4x100 meter freestyle relay
  • 200 meter freestyle
  • 200 meter butterfly
  • 4x200 meter freestyle relay
  • 200 meter individual medley
  • 100 meter butterfly
  • 4x100 meter medley relay
In total, how many meters did Michael swim for his gold medals?

Finally, how many strokes did Michael have to take in total for all of his events combined if Michael can propel himself 2 meters with each stroke?
