Of course we all know it’s not easy to be an Olympic champion! What more! One that wins ELEVEN gold medals!

Not everyone can be 6ft 4in tall, have a wingspan – fingertip to fingertip – of 6ft 7in, and weigh 192lb – most likely all muscle weight!

Apart from swimming and traning, I can imagine Michael Phelps spends a lot of time eating.
