Retired Olympic Swimmer Michael Phelps Suffers Ankle Fracture
Michael Phelps attended the FINA Swimming World Championships on Sunday and surprised quite a few people by showing up in a walking boot.
According to Phelps’s coach, Bob Bowman, Phelps apparently sustained the ankle fracture after hitting his foot, then participating in a golf tournament in which “he walked about 20 miles and got a little stress fracture.”
It doesn’t affect Phelps's career at this point, of course, now that he’s retired. The Olympic gold medallist retired last year after the London Olympics and now holds a record 22 gold medals.
However, there is some gossip circulating that he may return for the next summer Olympic games, which will take place in 2016.
That would be an exciting turn of events.
