Michael Phelps mother is Debra (Debbie Phelps.) She went with him to the Beijing Summer Olympics and cheered him on in all of his swimming races.
Michael Phelps's second favourite stroke is backstroke (stated in his autobiography), although he doesn't usually compete in races with it because he says he wants 'more of a challenge.'
Micheal Phelps is a great man who won 8 olympic gold medals! He is so amazing because he sacrificed so much to win and it paid off!! In one of his races, he won by one-hundreth of a second!! I was so glad!
