Who is this Michael Phelps?

Michael Phelps who? I asked myself countless of times, "who is this Michael Phelps that everyone is raving about?"

Sport or anything involving exhausting physical activities (except shopping of course) is never my cup-of-tea. So, for obvious reasons, I don't follow and read anything on sports events and news about it, not even the Olympics. However, my curiosity got the better of me. I checked him out in the net and now I know why people, especially the ladies are raving about this Olympian, if I may say.

In a nutshell, he is a great swimmer who hails from Baltimore, Maryland, the US of A. He is a 14-time Olympic Gold Medalist and has beaten the record of another great swimmer, Mark Spitz.
