Worlds most titled Olympic champion Phelps to finish career after Rio

Worlds most titled Olympic champion Phelps to finish career after RioThat was a fantastic week, and a great way to finish my career. It was my final 200 meter race today (Thursday, August 11, - 112 International). It might look odd to only imagine that 20 years ago I learned how to swim, and now, in the next 48 hours, Ill stop performing. It seems like madness to even think about some of these things, but at the same time, its great because I have always had a chance to do whatever I wanted to do. Deep inside, I feel like 18, but body doesnt feel the same way anymore. It wears off, it hurts. Even you people can see its tough for me to get out of the water, the outstanding Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps said at a press conference.

I talked about it very much, but Im getting closer to my dream every day. Since childhood, Ive been dreaming of doing something that no one more is capable of. And I get my satisfaction. Winning is still something special for me, so you can see more and more emotions from me at awards ceremonies, the great athlete said.

Michael Phelps, the brilliant U.S. swimmer, walked his triumphant path from Athens 2004 till Rio 2016, having won 26 medals, 22 of them gold, two - silver and two more - bronze.
