2012 London Olympics American swimmer Michael Phelps, who won a record-matching eight Olympic medals in Athens and another eight in Beijing, has revealed in an interview with The Post Game that he plays an almost unhealthy dose of Call of Duty every week.
TPG: You have a new Kinect video game. What's your game system?
PHELPS: I really only play Xbox.
TPG: What's your game?
PHELPS: I've been playing a lot of Call of Duty lately. I find myself playing like 30 hours a week.
TPG: Do you play online and people don't know it's you?
PHELPS: Yeah, people don't know it's mine. I just get crushed. I always find myself getting heated, trash talking. And you know it's a 10-year-old kid on the other line that just demolished me. It's so frustrating. But it is fun, and I'm very competitive in everything I do.
So what this tells us is that Mr. Phelps swims a lot, eats a lot, sleeps a lot, plays CoD a lot, and smokes weed a lot (allegedly). Not a bad life, if I say so myself.
Are you going to watch the London Olympics?
