Michael, Nicole and Boomer Phelps chilling together

Q&A with 23-Time Olympic Gold Medalist Michael Phelps, now affectionately referred to as the “G.O.A.T.,” has told the Baltimore Sun that his 16 week old son, Boomer Robert Phelps, will be a Michigan Wolverine. Phelps proclaimed, “Boomer’s going to Michigan. Go Blue.” Like father like son. Phelps followed Coach Bob Bowman to the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, after the 2004 Olympic Games. Bowman replaced Jon Urbanchek as Michigan’s head coach and served in the head coaching position from 2006 to 2008. Phelps, who had already turned professional, could not compete collegiately but did swim for Club Wolverine. Michigan also lists Phelps as a volunteer coach from 2005 to 2008. Phelps took classes at Michigan but did not pursue a degree. After the 2008 Olympic Games, Phelps followed Bowman back to Baltimore when Bowman re-took the helm of the North Baltimore Aquatic Club. Arizona State University has recently challenged Michigan’s sole claim to Phelps.

Unbelievable: The Chad le Clos Story - Official Documentary (2016)

Four years ago at the London 2012 Olympic Games, Chad le Clos stunned the world when he beat Michael Phelps to an Olympic gold medal in the 200m butterfly. His father Bert, Chad’s best friend and mentor, captured hearts all over the planet with his emotional response to Chad’s victory on the BBC. Chad went head-to-head with Phelps again this summer, with their races the most anticipated of the Games, but the journey to Rio has been beset with family pain. Bert has been fighting prostate cancer since his diagnosis in 2015; and his wife Geraldine, Chad’s mum, is fighting breast cancer for the second time, and underwent a double mastectomy in May this year. “UNBELIEVABLE” is the story of Chad and Bert’s road to Rio, a story of extraordinary emotion, incredible commitment and burning desire for Olympic gold. A OneToWatch production, UNBELIEVABLE has been directed by Sir Matthew Pinsent, himself a four time Olympic Gold medallist and BBC broadcaster.
