Michael Phelps

I wrote this on Facebook about Michael Phelps, with regards to his wins in the current 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro:

"Michael Phelps is truly an impressive athlete; unlike those who are talked up as great and then go on to lose, he is dismissed and goes on to win (such as when he wasn't believed about being able to pull off eight golds in 2008) - not to mention his leaving retirement to compete once again. My family have been fans of his since the 2004 Games, so we're glad he's now the most-decorated Olympian - certainly a worthy and decent person for the title."

Phelps has always come across as genuine whenever we've seen or heard him be interviewed. He's definitely deserving of all his success; that he's competed in so many Olympics and performed strongly in all of them is a testament to him.


  1. It's crazy how much this guy wins after all these years. He isn't getting old yet.
