Michael Phelps is one of those guys I totally get. Dude worked his ass off for years, basically hit his peak in 08, had a couple of off years when he wanted to enjoy life outside of sport, and then came back. There are plenty of examples in athletics, Michael Jordan and Tiger Woods come to mind. Andre Agassi said he absolutely hated tennis.

Is Michael the same as he was? Probably not, he's seemed just not quite as good as he was when he was blowing out the competition. But the sport is forgiving, and he's still VERY good. And he worked his ass off. Maybe he is a freak of nature, but he didn't get to the Olympics by not working at it.

Tyler Clary should just STFU. Sometimes you don't have what it takes to be an Olympic athlete. Hey he works hard, good for him. But disparaging another guy without any idea what the sport takes out of you over a period of 10 or 15 years is ridiculous.

Frankly I'd love to see ol' Bong-hit Phelps win a couple more medals, then go home and smoke up and play xbox for the rest of his life. Live the farkin dream, dude.

BTW Phelps needs three medals to become the most decorated Olympic athlete ever. And he already has the record for most gold medals by an Olympian. There is no way to talk smack about him without looking like an utter twat.

He feels Phelps' success makes a mockery of his effort. This is the kind of guy that accuses the smart kids of cheating because he studied his ass off and still got a B.

Clary has been swimming for a long time. His earliest international swim meet was in 2006 in Brazil. He doesn't have the Olympic-caliber experience that Phelps does for sure, but he's still put in a lot of time and traveled a lot of places.

Diogenes: d3: I don't understand how Clary or anyone else gets off talking about what Phelps should do. He wasn't born or bred to push himself any harder than he wants to. If he uses his talent to only get 14 gold medals instead of more, who is Clary or anyone else to judge him for it?

Especially a newbie. Pretty ballsy.


That's the best part. If anything this will fan the flames for Phelps to kick his ass even more, just to put Clary in his place.

This kid deserves to get boo'ed whenever he steps in front of the cameras just for being a smarmy douche.

Until today, I don't think there was even a single world-caliber swimmer that I actively disliked and thought was an awful human being.

From what little swimming news I've heard, Phelps has been training seriously again for about a year and should be ready to go for London.

I'm afraid the Phelps will be quite operational when your friends arrive.
