Michael Phelps


Last quote by Michael Phelps

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

Michael Phelps quotes

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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
