Interestingly enough, August 11 is the day that leaves 142-days left in the year.
Here's the reporting from CNN, validating my findings.
Of course '22' is the master builder number.
Master = 4+1+1+2+5+9 = 22/31 (Phelps is currently 31)
31 is the 11th prime number, 11 is the 'master' number.
Notice the 10:42 post time, a lot like '142'.
Update: They're now calling this the greatest Olympic accomplishment in 2,160 years, emphasis on '216'.
