The Inspirational Michael Phelps

Michael Phelps is 31 years old and competing in his fourth Olympics. He’s won four gold medals so far in Rio, for a career total of 22 gold medals. Phelps took a picture with a young fan in 2008. His name is Joseph Schooling, and eight years later he represents Singapore in the Rio Olympics.


Yesterday, Schooling won the men’s 200 meter butterfly to earn Singapore’s first Olympic gold medal ever, beating Phelps, who tied for second place with Chad LeClos and Lazlo Cseh.

Here Phelps is signing autographs at a public appearance. The young girl is Katie LeDecky, who won four gold medals in Rio in women’s freestyle and set three world records. She’s out of the pool and up on the winner’s podium before her competitors finish the race.


Michael Phelps has established himself as the greatest Olympic swimmer of all time, but after four Summer Games, a new generation is beginning to take over. -via reddit
