Michael Phelps Opens Up About 'Tackling' His Past Battle With Depression 'Head On'

Michael Phelps

With baby number two on the way, Michael Phelps couldn't be happier… but that wasn't always the case.

There was a time the 32-year-old Olympian struggled with anxiety and depression — something he speaks candidly about in the new documentary, Angst.

Telling Us Weekly about his involvement in the project, the swimmer said of his own experience with mental health:

"For me, it was all about being vulnerable. I think it's scary for a lot of people to think about that word. I just wanted to change. I was to the point where I didn't like who I was. I didn't like looking at myself like seeing the reflection that you see in the mirror. I kind of just tackled it head-on."

As you may know, Phelps past struggles included DUIs and a stint in rehab.

Michael Phelps Gave It His All While Racing A Great White Shark — But Was It Enough?

Michael Phelps HAS to be part shark.

We mean, the Olympian can't be human, especially after he raced against a number of sharks for Phelps vs Shark: Great Gold vs Great White. Okay, so the gold medalist didn't ACTUALLY race alongside a Jaws type beast, but his swimming skills were tested next to virtual versions of certain sharks.

Now, the Discovery Channel made it perfectly clear that Phelps wouldn't be swimming side-by-side with live sharks during the Shark Week race, yet fans were still baffled by the situation. Many noted on Twitter:

They went all out!

The sports world is having its moment!

Following the ESPYs, Gabby Douglas, Simone Biles, and Aly Raisman reunited once again on Thursday night!

The trio arrived at Nickelodeon's Kids' Choice Sports Awards in El Lay, looking pretty fierce while serving leg!

Maybe not to be outdone, Gabby was definitely having a moment in her sequined black crop top and matching pencil skirt, while Simone opted for a purple mini dress with black heels.

Sadly for Aly, we're still not really sure what she was going for with her sailor-esque frock!

The Schutz heels and her Alexis Bittar ring were cute tough.

Lamar Odom, Michael Phelps, and Russell Wilson (accompanied by his stepson Future Jr.) were also in attendance. You can check them out in the gallery (above)!

Kevin Durant Was NOT Happy About Being Roasted In Peyton Manning's ESPYs Monologue — See The Funny Memes & More Show Highlights!

Kevin Durant can make shots, but he can't take them!

At least that was the case during Wednesday night's ESPY Awards, when the basketball pro was seriously not impressed about being mocked in Peyton Manning's opening monologue!

The former Denver Broncos QB and ESPYs host fired off a few jokes to open the ceremony, telling the crowd that the Women's Gymnastics Final Five — Simone Biles, Gabby Douglas, Laurie Hernandez, Madison Kocian, and Aly Raisman — were "so dominant" at the summer Olympics that "Kevin Durant told me he wants to play for them next year," adding:

"I've got to tell ya. I don't think he'd start for that team."

LOLz!!

The camera cut to the NBA star (who has been criticized for joining the Golden State Warriors this past season as many believed it was just to win a championship) sitting in the audience, and his hilariously displeased reaction made it clear he did not appreciate being roasted.

Add Durant's face with the fact that he was strikingly underdressed for the event — rocking a T-shirt while surrounded by tuxes and dresses — and it's no surprise the moment became an instant meme:

Everyone make sure your man is in the cage and your cage is in the water — because Shark Week is almost upon us!

The annual Discovery programming block is turning 29 this year, but you'd think it was 12 with this latest stunt: Michael Phelps is racing a shark!

The Olympic gold medal swimmer is testing his aquatic speed against the ultimate swimming (and killing) machine in the form of a great white shark in the upcoming special entitled Phelps Vs. Shark: Great Gold Vs. Great White.

Photos: Ryan Lochte's Baby Boy Makes His Debut On Instagram!

We have no idea how the Sunday, July 23 special will pull off the race, though we can probably guarantee Phelps won't be racing for his life. Probably. According to the promo:

"They are one of the fastest and most efficient predators on the planet: Sharks. He is our greatest champion to ever get in the water: Michael Phelps. 39 world records. 23 Olympic golds. But he has one competition left to win. An event so monumental no one has ever attempted it before. The world's most decorated athlete takes on the ocean's most efficient predator: "Phelps V Shark" – the race is on!"

We are so down to see this! Will YOU be tuning in??
