Bob Bowman, Michael Phelps swimming coach, said that he would advise Phelps from swimming internationally anymore until they lose these new performance suits. This obviously coming after Phelps LOST for the first time in almost five years yesterday.
“Probably expect Michael not to swim until they are implemented,” Bowman said. “I’m done with this. It has to be implemented immediately. The sport is in shambles right now and they better do something or they’re going to lose their guy who fills these seats.
“That would be my recommendation to him, to not swim internationally – he might swim locally. But who knows. The mess needs to be stopped right now. This can’t go on any further.”
That was the quote, now here is the problem I have.
Thre wasn’t a fucking PEEP outta Bowman’s mouth about suits being unfair last summer, when “our guy” Phelps had the advantage with one of these types of suits that not many people had.
I love Phelps. Am in awe of his accomplishments. But it’s shitty to take away the MONUMENTAL effort this unknown German kid threw down yesterday, and start talking about unfair swimming suits NOW.
P.S. Neck-to-waist is there a sicker Papa rig on Earth other than Phelps’?!
Look at this dude…
