Would love to see pictures of other US swimmers too!

This is idolatry

I agree, this is ridiculous. Did Rio2016.com only provide photos of Phelps? Were they unable to photoshop Schmitt out of the photo of the two of them walking together? Was it that impossible to come up with a collection with a few group shots and change the title to “Michael, Ryan, Missy, and Katie join the US squad for their first swim practice in Rio”? You can plug your 4 stars without ignoring the vast majority of the team.

I’m sure you’ll see them trickle out more photos. Relax

The article is titled Michael Phelps first practice session. That is what the article is about.

His body is so lean and yet extremely well-defined it’s incredible

You can definitely tell his diet has played an important role to where he is right now….literally no fat on him right now!
