Jul 20 2017

Seeing how fast they can move and switch direction on a dime, it's unbelievable.feedback

Jul 20 2017

We're not in the water at the same exact time. That's the one thing we wanted everyone to know – I was safe. I had 12 to 14 divers underneath me when we were doing the race. When you have an animal this size, you want to be able to see how fast they swim. It's tough to go into their territory and be able to swim as fast as they do, right?feedback

Jul 20 2017

When we were in the cage, as soon as I first got in, I felt both sides of the cage kind of moving back and forth, and I was like 'Oh my gosh, we're really getting bit, the cage is shaking'. They didn't look that big underwater. I guess now seeing the video, they were pretty massive sharks. I had one, like I was saying, literally come right up to my nose, and it was crazy.feedback

Jul 14 2017

That is all we did, we just stood by the steps and he went up-down, up-down. It is the little things in life, where watching him are the coolest.feedback

Jul 13 2017

He might try to hit me with it. He just picks things up and just starts hitting things, so maybe I'll just show it to him and not give it to him yet.feedback

Jul 13 2017

For me, watching Boomer every day and watching him grow up literally in front of my eyes … it's really awesome. Now he's to the point where he's racing around the house, just walking around, running, you name it, holding my hand and dragging me all over the house. It's fun. We love it. And it should be fun to see when he starts talking or the next big milestone he hits.feedback

Jun 16 2017

We definitely want more kids, it just depends on when.feedback

Jun 16 2017

Every little change [with Boomer], we're welcoming it. We're not saying 'I wish he walks, talks or does this,' because by the time it happens we'll miss it. So we're taking it step by step and day by day and just enjoying the experience.feedback

Jun 16 2017

Nicole has recently brought up that she would like a girl! I'm sure I'm getting pressure. We didn't really plan the first time [with Boomer]. But [we're] trying to get moving on some things!feedback

Jun 16 2017

[The past year] has been so busy, but I don't really know what happened – it has been a blur. It's wild, but that's why time is so valuable and time is so important. It's been a good year, but a crazy year. I just don't want to miss out on anything with my family.feedback

Jun 16 2017 - Facebook

Last year, going into the Games, I was eating just fish and chicken, trying to stay away from red meat, trying to get as lean as I could.feedback

May 26 2017 - Olympic Games

I'm training Boomer and all the babies around the world to be the best swimmers that they can be. It's never too early to introduce your baby to the water. We're at the stage where we're constantly looking out for him, because he's grabbing everything. We basically hop in two or three times a week. Boomer loves it, he floats around in our hands trying to swim butterfly. He loves being in the water and he doesn't mind going under.feedback

May 05 2017

I want people to understand that there are times that you are going to have to reach out.feedback

May 05 2017

I want to be able to get out in front and talk and say 'Look, yes I've done these great things in the pool, but I'm also a human,' . I'm also a human like some of the people in this world who are going through the same exact struggles that I have.feedback

Apr 28 2017

It's something that I'm thankful happened, and I'm thankful that I am how I am. I look at myself everyday and I'm so proud and so happy of who I am and who I was able to become.feedback

Apr 28 2017

Growing up, I was someone who was constantly bouncing off the walls – I could never sit still. I think the biggest thing for me, once I found that it was okay to talk to someone and seek help, I think that's something that has changed my life forever. Now I'm able to live life to its fullest.feedback

Apr 24 2017

I started visualising when I was 14. It was about thinking how a race could go so you're ready for anything – and it helped throughout my career. It's crazy to look back because it feels I've been living a dream come true. This is everything I dreamt of as a kid. It's like: 'This is real?' And it's wild. I wanted to take the sport of swimming to a new level – and I have.feedback

Apr 20 2017

Nicole and I, before finding out [about Boomer] thought we'd travel around the world for a bit and have a honeymoon, but sometimes life isn't exactly what you think it will be. We are so fortunate to have a healthy and happy baby and hopefully more coming soon, but we don't know when.feedback

Apr 20 2017

We're at the stage where we're constantly looking out for him, because he's grabbing everything. Boomer has a pretty short attention span though, so he'll go from interested to not in a second. Depending on his mood, he gets a story, but if he's grouchy he goes right down. And if he wakes up in the middle of the night, we sing a couple of songs and we'll make up words to lullabies that we know. If you put B.B. King on for some strange reason, it calms him so much! If he's grouchy, we put on something like that and he's immediately soothed.feedback

Apr 20 2017 - Sustainable Development

Anything he can get his hands on goes in his mouth. When he grows up we're going to teach him more about water conservation, because when you brush your teeth for two minutes and leave the water running, you waste 4 to 5 gallons of water. That number is astronomical. We basically hop in two or three times a week. Boomer loves it, he floats around in our hands trying to swim butterfly. He loves being in the water and he doesn't mind going under. He's the direct opposite of me as a kid, he doesn't like being on his back and that's how I learned to swim. He's a step ahead of me.feedback

Apr 18 2017

Being able to be around him, watch him ... [Plank] always has so much energy, and he loves what he does.feedback

Apr 07 2017

Thank you Johnny for being such an inspiration to us all. Love your version of #RuleYourself.feedback

Mar 02 2017 - Doping

I don't believe that I've stood up at international competitions and the rest of the field has been clean. I don't believe that. I don't think I've ever felt that. I know that when I do stand up in the U.S., I know we're all clean because we're going through the same thing. Internationally I think there has to be something done, and it has to be done now.feedback

Feb 23 2017

I look back at things that I've been able to accomplish and everything that I have and I'm just so happy with where I am in life.feedback

Feb 23 2017

I'm not perfect. Nobody is. I will be the first one to admit a mistake when it's made. That's the only way you are able to move on and learn from that mistake. By no means has my life been absolutely perfect.feedback

Feb 21 2017

I would like to now be able to chose up and coming swimmers, whether they are in the U.S. or throughout the world, to potentially reach their goals and dreams.feedback

Feb 21 2017

What he did in the sport of basketball, I think that is really special and was neat for me to watch. … I want to do the same thing. I have some personal goals that I would like to achieve in the business world and I don't actually think anybody knows what they are. I've always done that. And, yeah, I've always been somebody who's kept some very specific goals to myself.feedback

Feb 14 2017

At a very young age I learned how important sleep was.feedback

Feb 14 2017

I really can't say it enough. I don't think people really pay enough attention to how important sleep is.feedback

Feb 05 2017

A passion of mine is working with kids and being able to help and give back. To be able to get an event like this where you have a bunch of us here for a great cause at a great time of the year, down here for the Super Bowl, you can't beat it.feedback

Dec 01 2016

2017 will be a big year.feedback

Dec 01 2016

I would love to get involved, whether it's in a couple little startups here and there, take a little risk, have some fun and see where it goes.feedback

Sep 27 2016

I did have a talk with him about two days before about not doing anything bad. I told him: 'Just keep your head on straight. Have fun.feedback

Aug 14 2016

I picked him up after I was done and just held him. That's something I'm really, really looking forward to, just watching him grow up.feedback

Aug 14 2016

You guys won't see me at one of these things for a long time. See you later.feedback

Aug 14 2016

Being apart from him for the last three weeks, four weeks from when I saw him last, he's grown so much. I changed a diaper last night. He was just sitting there looking at me, smiling the whole time. It brought a tear to my eye, just because he hasn't seen me in a while and it was so cool to see him smiling back at me and laughing and giggling.feedback

Aug 14 2016

I walked to the pool tonight and I almost felt myself starting to cry - the last warm-up, the last time putting on a suit, the last time walking out in front of thousands of people representing my country. This is the way I wanted to finish my career.feedback

Aug 14 2016

I might let him take one.feedback

Aug 14 2016

This is it, I am done. I couldn't be happier with how I finish my career, and no better way than finishing with a gold medal, that's for sure.feedback

Aug 13 2016 - Olympic Games

I think the biggest thing for me through the meet so far is I've been able to kind of finish how I wanted to. I'm happy with how things finished. That's why I came back after '12. I didn't want to have a what-if 20 years later.feedback

Aug 13 2016 - Olympic Games

Being able to close the door on this sport the way I wanted to, that's why I'm happy now.feedback

Aug 13 2016

If anything, I was a little bit slower than I thought I was going to be.feedback

Aug 13 2016

I don't know if I've (ever) been in a tie, so a three way tie is pretty wild.feedback

Aug 13 2016 - Japan

It's kind of special, and a decent way to finish my last individual race. Can't complain too much. Strange is not the right word. Need to create a new one for that. I got silver tie in London so a three way tie is crazy. Maybe in Tokyo a four way tie.feedback

Aug 13 2016

I'm happy. I'm ready to spend some time with Boomer and Nicole and watch the little dude grow.feedback

Aug 12 2016

Right now I don't know how to wrap my head around that. I don't know what to say. It's been a hell of a career.feedback

Aug 11 2016

Obviously, the first one (200 IM), I need to take care of business. Whatever I can do in the second one (100 fly) just to make it through is what I'll do.feedback

Aug 11 2016

But I screwed up. I try not to even think about it because then I get focused on that. But I'd like to have those extra seven, eight minutes in between.feedback

Aug 11 2016 - Olympic Games

The history him and I have had with one another, it's something special and something I've never had in another competitor of mine. We'll have one more time to hop in the pool and duke it out.feedback

Aug 10 2016

Definitely fatigued a little bit. He had got about five hours sleep.feedback

Aug 09 2016 - Doping

We have some tough young kids in our team and I think that is something special. It is kind of sad that today, in sports in general, not just in swimming, there are people who are testing positive and are allowed back in the sport, and multiple times.feedback

Aug 09 2016

You're probably going to see a lot of people speaking up more. I think something needs to be done.feedback

Aug 08 2016

I have done it for awhile but I haven't had bad ones (marks) like this awhile though. That's where I hurt the most. I have done it before pretty much every meet I go to. I just asked for a little cupping yesterday because I was sore.feedback

Aug 08 2016

I think I probably got to sleep at about 3am and I was on an 11am bus.feedback

Aug 08 2016

I've been a little off on my predictions to make it into semis and finals. I was thinking 1:57 would be good this morning, but I saw a couple of 55s and wanted to be somewhere at the front of the heat.feedback

Aug 08 2016

They were making us cry.feedback

Aug 08 2016

It's good to see the emotion of those young guys. It shows they really do care and they love what they're doing.feedback

Aug 08 2016

That's the fastest 100 free I've ever gone in my career, so I hope that's a good sign. I guess we'll see over the next couple of days. But I'm very pleased with the start.feedback

Aug 08 2016

Coming off the wall I thought my kickout was great. I just wanted to hammer it, hit the touch and give them a bigger lead.feedback

Aug 08 2016

When I was on the block, I honestly thought my heart was going to explode out of my chest. I was so hyped tonight and so excited.feedback

Aug 08 2016

It felt good to get my last 400 free relay of my career with this thing around my neck. It feels good to get it back.feedback

Aug 07 2016 - Olympic Games

I do know that the coaching staff will put out the four fastest guys, whoever that is. I'm looking forward to either watching or being in that race.feedback

Aug 07 2016 - Olympic Games

You can probably pick three or four teams that are going to have a chance to win that relay. The Australians made a significant charge over the past couple of years with their men's and women's teams combined. A lot of younger guys really stepped up, and that brings more excitement to the sport.feedback

Aug 07 2016 - Olympic Games

That's something I've had the privilege to be a part of since 2004, and I'm hoping to have the opportunity again. It's always super-fast and there are always some wild, crazy splits that take place.feedback

Aug 03 2016

This time around, it's about so much more than medals.feedback

Aug 03 2016

And now, I want to walk in the opening ceremony, take it all in, represent America in the best possible way and make my family proud.feedback

Aug 03 2016 - Greece

For Sydney, I just wanted to make the team. For Athens, I wanted to win gold for my country. For Beijing, I wanted to do something nobody else had done (breaking Mark Spitz's record with eight gold medals). In London, I wanted to make history.feedback

Dec 20 2014 - Olympic Games

I now have the tools to move past this. What I did was wrong, and I made a bad mistake. I'm looking forward to having a much brighter future than I had in the past.feedback

Oct 31 2012

Anything is possible, it really is.feedback
