Michael Phelps: Shirtless on 'Details' Olympics Issue!

Michael Phelps goes shirtless on the cover of Details‘ August 2012 issue celebrating the Summer Olympics.

Here is what the 27-year-old fourteen-time Olympic gold medal-winning swimmer shared with the mag:

On the infamous marijuana photo: “It was a learning experience. I’m the kind of person who has to go through the learning experiences myself. Somebody could tell me, “If you eat this much you’ll be fat,” and I’d be like, ‘Yeah, okay, let me try it.’ I’ll be the first to say I’ve made thousands of mistakes, but I’ve never made the same mistake twice.”

On gaining 25 pounds after the 2008 Olympics: “At that point, I just didn’t have anything. It was weird going from the highest of the high, the biggest point of your life—winning eight gold medals—and then saying, ‘All right, where do I go from here?’ I wasn’t motivated. I did nothing, literally nothing, for a long time. I gained 25 pounds. A friend of mine and I were playing football on the beach in Miami, and somebody got a picture of us and put it all over the place. And he’s like, “Bro, you gotta start working out, man. You are fat.”

On his Olympics outlook: “When you get to the big meet, you’ve done all the training. You tune everything out and go up to the block and do what you’ve prepared to do. You can’t go back and fix anything. Whatever happens, happens. If you fail, you just get up and try again.”
