Greatest Olympic hero of all time. Tonight he has no finals, just the semi-finals of the 200 IM. The 8 Gold are looking good.

And he gets to eat 10,000 calories a day for maintenance (as reported via the news). Apparently he swims so damn much that he has to eat nearly 10k calories to maintain his bodyweight of 190lbs and no matter how much he eats he can't seem to crest the 190lb mark. Not that it matters, he's still beast.

I've lived in Australia for a few years and its a fairly big deal to them. I'm just astounded that you wouldn't consider Michael Phelps a "real athlete" when the dude is the greatest olympian EVER. How that makes him less than a "real athlete" is beyond my comprehension.
But enjoy your ride home on the short bus.

I think the bottom line for them must be energy no matter where it comes from.

If you look at his diet... HE NEEDS CARBS. And LOTS of em. I mean three french toast, and three pancakes, plus a sh!t ton of grits.
We dont do 88K a week of swimming, or you too could eat like he does.

I don't give a flying **** about swimming even when the Olympics are on but you can't deny Phelps' abilities as an athlete... If you do, you're pretty much an idiot.

I think in one of the recent interviews they talked about bbeing in the pool between 5-7 hours a day. No wonder he can eat the way he does. No one can deny the type of athlete he is. That is just freakish

Alright Phelps fans, he is going for Gold #6 tonight in the 200 IM. He also has the semi finals in the 100 Fly. If he wins the 200 IM and 100 Fly Speedo is giving him a 1 million dollar bonus.

I think "best Olympic athlete of all-time" is a exaggerated, but he definitely dominates his sport like no other athlete in their domain.

agreed they are freaks no doubt, too bad they never get to fully utilise there speed and strength due to the stop/start nature of the NFL.
