The most decorated Olympian of all time, Michael Phelps, otherwise known as The Flying Fish or the Baltimore Bullet is an international superstar. Hailing from Baltimore, Maryland, the world-renowned swimmer has won a record 28 Olympic medals (23 of which were gold) across various events to earn a global reputation and fanbase.
The dynamic swimmer is versatile in the water, able to compete at the top level in various categories, including butterfly, freestyle, backstroke and individual medley – all of different lengths, though he specialised in short distance swimming due to his incredible speed and endless energy.
The thirty-three-year-old superstar swimmer has earned his place in history and now works as an inspirational and motivational speaker, engaging with people of all ages to show the sacrifices and hardships that come with being an elite level Olympian.
Promoting healthy and active lives, as well as helping others achieve their dreams with his ‘Dream, plan, reach’ Foundation-wide motto. Michael has already been able to support future athletes in pursuing their wildest ambitions.
With an obsessive passion, Michael was able to turn his fear of getting his face wet into the most successful swimming career in world history. With principles of hard work and commitment drummed into him from an early age, he was able to set targets and improve day by day, week by week… and the rest is history.
Now retired, he is able to coach and mentor young people, as well as pass on advice and tips on how an elite sportsman such as himself fights off competition, pushes boundaries and drives to reach the very top. Perhaps Phelps’ most famous quote is: ‘If you want to be the best, you have to do things that other people aren’t willing to do.’ It is testament to his mental strength and character which have helped him to become the best
