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 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.

Ryan Lochte can breathe a sigh of relief…

As we reported, during the Rio Olympics last summer, the swimmer lied to authorities when he said he was robbed at gunpoint by men pretending to be cops. In actuality, the "robbers" were gas station security guards who stopped Lochte and teammates Gunnar Bentz, Jack Conger, and Jimmy Feigen for vandalizing property.

The gold medalist was charged with falsely reporting a crime.

Fast forward to Friday, the 32-year-old has been cleared of all charges.

According to the judge, Lochte told the fabricated story AFTER cops approached him for questioning. Thus, he never set out to lie.

Since the incident, the athlete got engaged to model Kayla Rae Reid in October 2016, and they had their first child Caiden Zane Lochte in June of this year.
