1 year ago.Final prediction
100 Fly resulting in Gold and a new WR
3 Relays resulting in more Gold and another two WRMarla
1 year ago.He will swim in Rio . He will swim and win the 100 fly; and he will set a new world record in that event., He will qualify for and swim 3 relays and ....also win.
Only questions remaining are: will he swim anything else, and if so what ??
Maybe the 200 Im , Maybe the 100 bk, Maybe the 100 fr Maybe the 200fly....all unlikely. He will probably stick with winning more gold and having some fun at the beach.
GO MICHAEL !!Gladys
1 year ago.is not coming backkyle
2 years ago.He said he's not going to compete at The Rio Olympics. Back when he did that 08 interview he is not swimming competitively past 30 years old. If he changes his mind, It is because of sponsors or he wants to win again. I wish i could compete against him in the 100 free and maybe train in the 100 fly and my favorite the 50 free but with college coaches telling me that he wants 6" foot plus people instead of a 5"9. 5"10 sprinter that hates to lose and will train hard to be fast. I hope that he does come back. No one does not like to lose in races.Eslam Refaie
2 years ago.He is not gonna be back , by any meaaaaaaaaaaaan .
PHELPS BACK = OTHERS GETTING HIS SPONSORS .
he will not be back unless he runs of sponsors and winning again is his only way out .
and this will not happen before lets say , mmmm , 40 years from now .Craig Alguire
2 years ago.I cannot see him coming back without doing his first Olympic event, the 200 fly. I think he drops both IM events to focus on free / fly for maximal events on a focused training schedule (ie, forget backstroke and breastroke). That said, it will be hard not to go for 4-peat in the 200 IM.
100 free in the OT, not in Rio
200 free, Rio if qualifies and content he will be competitive
3 relays assuming some young star does not replace him.Craig Alguire
2 years ago.I cannot see him coming back without doing the 200 fly. However, events add up quickly. I agree the 400 IM is gone. He needs the 100 / 200 free in the trials at least to qualify for relays. Maybe the 200 IM is gone as well so he can focus on free / fly.
100 free in OT, not in Rio
