Michael Phelps (born June 30, 1985) is a swimmer, a US Olympic athlete who won a record 8 gold medals at the Beijing Olympics in 2008. He has a total of 14 gold medals and holds 6 world records in swimming. In 2009, he was subject to extensive (and some feel undue) media coverage for a video showing him smoking marijuana. While preparing for competition, he is said to eat up to 12000 calories a day. An impressive total, but much of this is consumed by his long hours of swimming.
