What does Michael Phelps have left to prove in the pool?
Yes, you had the same answer as I did.
Not sure why Phelps wants to return to competitive swimming, unless maybe he can’t figure out anything else to do with his life.
I watched Phelps long climb to the top of Olympic competition. He’s the greatest Olympian ever. He’s the greatest swimmer ever.
At the 2012 London Olympics, I witnessed the unthinkable.
I saw Phelps get passed. Yes, he was a gutsy, determined survivor, but he was nowhere close to the Phelps I had watched poolside in Beijing. He was a shadow of his best self.
And now, he might be a shadow of that shadow.
