Michael Phelps Drops Chance To Win 8 Medals In London!

| Filed under: Michael PhelpsOlympicsSwimming

phelps-want-no-eight-medal-london.jpg

Michael Phelps has voluntarily dropped from the 200-meter freestyle race for the 2012 Summer Games in London.

So now there's no way he could win another eight medals!

What was he THINKING?!

He's apparently planning on focusing on the 200 and 400-meter individual medley and the 100 and 200-meter butterfly.

Dropping that one race will give him that much more time to concentrate on the three relays he'll be swimming for Team USA.

Way to be a team player!

USA! USA! USA!

Michael Phelps Retiring After 2012 Olympics

Michael Phelps Retiring

Say it ain't so, Michael Phelps!

Apparently, the Olympic swimmer is ready to cool his jets — and will be retiring after the 2012 Summer Olympics!

Honestly, we can totally understand this. Michael has devoted almost his entire life to swimming. We'd be eager to move on as well. He'll probably never stop swimming completely, but we're sure he's starting to get tired of doing it competitively!

His mom would like him to do juuuuuust one more, though, saying this about the 2016 Games:

"C'mon Michael just a 50 freestyle. I've never been [to Brazil] before."

LOLz!

Michael responded:

"We'll go watch. But once I retire, I'm retiring. I'm done."

He only needs two more medals to tie the record holder for most medals. We're willing to bet he won't stop at just two, though — sailing past 18 medals, and making it just THAT much harder for someone to challenge his record!

We're sad to see you go, Michael! You represent your country so well!

But if your happiness is outside of swimming, we say go for that gold next!

American Swimmer Breaks His OWN World Record

| Filed under: Michael PhelpsFitnessSwimming

If nobody else can do it, you might as well just do it yourself!

American swimmer Ryan Lochte broke the world record for fastest 200-meter individual medley on Thursday morning, which he set himself 2 years ago.

At the world swimming championships in Shanghai, China, Lochte finished the race in 1 minute and 54 seconds, just a TENTH of a second faster than his previous record.

His Olympic teammate, Michael Phelps, finished just behind him to clinch second place.

Check out the video above for all the details! Congrats on the record, Ryan!
