Once again, Mesa, Arizona will be overrun with swim fans in 2015, as for the second-straight year, Michael Phelps will make his comeback to competitive swimming at the Arena Pro Swim Series – Mesa (formerly the Mesa Grand Prix) meet in April. The meet runs from April 15th-18th.
“I’ve enjoyed, lately, more than I really ever have being back in the water,” Phelps said. “I haven’t had that kind of excitement that I had in a long time. It’s just me feeling I guess like me again. I’m trying to build back a base again.”
Phelps is currently serving a 6 month suspension from USA Swimming after being arrested for DUI in September. He will be eligible to return to competition on April 7th, which makes the Pro Swim Series – Mesa meet will be the first major event after his suspension is lifted.
Phelps is in Germany this week speaking at a trade show representing his new swimsuit sponsor Aqua Sphere.
