Michael Phelps Not planning a comeback for the 2016 summer games

Following Michael Phelps success at the 2012 London Olympics, the most decorated Olympian of all time, said that he was hanging up his Speedo and retiring from the sport at 27 years of age. A false rumor started circulating on Twitter that Phelps had a change of heart and planned on returning to the pool at the 2016 Olympic games in Rio de Janeiro.

According to Peter Busch, the weeknight anchor for the NBC affiliate in Fort Myers, Florida, Phelps has confirmed, via a tweet, that yes indeed he will be returning for the next summer Olympic games. This was a lie and Busch changed his story.



Stay Confident Pete, but it looks like the Speedos will be hanging in the closet.
