Swimmer Michael Phelps’ Suspension Lifted

Michael Phelps Suspension Lifted

After a three-month suspension for a photo that showed Olympian Michael Phelps smoking marijuana, the suspension has finally been lifted by USA Swimming.  The lift of the suspension and the reinstatement of Phelps to international swimming competitions was made official as of Tuesday (May 5).

Phelps set several world records and won eight Olympic gold medals in the 2008 games in Beijing, China.  However, throughout his suspension, Phelps wasn’t always sure that he would return to swimming.  In an article recently published in the Seattle Times (online), Michael Phelps admitted: “There were days I would just come and warm up and say, ‘I’m not feeling it.’ I would just go home.  If I woke up and didn’t feel like going in and working out, I would stay in bed and watch TV.”

Nonetheless, Phelps acknowledges that his entertainment of the thought was due to his stagnation and that he was never really considering quitting: “What am I doing even thinking about quitting? I’m 23 years old. I’m not retiring at 23.”
