Michael Phelps Says He's Not Planning On Competing in 2020 Olympics
The 30-year-old swimmer took the chance to clarify the rumors after the 100m Butterfly, where he took the silver.
“I will just clarify that Ryan doesn’t know what he is talking about. I am not coming back in four years,” he explained.
Michael added, “I have two laps left in my career so I am happy and I’m excited and looking forward to tomorrow. I saw (what Ryan said) and I was like ‘thanks Ryan, throw me back out there for another four years.’ If he wants to come back it will be great.”
Michael‘s last race will be the 4×100-meter medley relay on Saturday, August 13.
