Michael Phelps Shows Off Warmup Pool Day Before Olympic Trials Start

The greatest-ever, Michael Phelps, went live again on Facebook this morning.


Phelps talks with some of his training partners at ASU, including Allison SchmittDavid NolanCierra Runge, Conor Dwyer and more. He also shows viewers his workout for the morning.

Be sure to follow his son, Boomer, on Instagram at @boomerrphelps. “I’m gonna definitely teach him how to swim, and teach him how to be water-safe, but… the ball’s in his court,” said Phelps.

Later on in the live broadcast, we learn that Schmitt’s favorite food is tacos. Of course, throughout the video, Phelps and Bob Bowman exchange plenty of witty banter.

“I don’t anymore, I just gave up,” said Bowman about how he gets Phelps to do what Bowman wants him to.

Phelps moves to the warmup pool, where Chase Kalisz is doing some butterfly. Kalisz is a favorite to make the Olympic team in the 400 IM, and is also entered in the 200 IM and 200 fly along with Phelps. The G.O.A.T. is also entered in the 100 free, 100 fly, and 200 free for the week.

The first racing session of the Trials begin tomorrow morning.
