Much better than the SI cover.

I don’t think those are tatoos…I think its ESPN’s way of saying that they think he’s a super swimming robot…they are showing his “robot” interior as they peel his skin away. Very scifi sexy.

WHAT ABOUT USAIN BOLT…. HE IS MORE POPULAR THAN PHELPS..!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anything to cover more of him up. He is disturbingly ugly…

He looks like a robot to me, agree with #10

Interesting pic, it’s not your usual Phelps-in-micro-speedo cover. I like it.

two words: BLOOD DOPING

Great looking dude, I am envious.
