Olympic icon Michael Phelps is out of rehab reports TMZ Sports.

After Phelps second DUI arrest, he entered a treatment center. Phelps is now out and spending time with family.

Phelps Twitter account has been dormant since October 5th when he released this statement:

Phelps did, however, post the above photo on his Instagram account 4 days ago, with the caption “What a great thanksgiving dinner with family!!!” tagging his mom, his sister Hilary, and his girlfriend Nicole Johnson in the photo.

Neither his Instagram post nor the TMZ article indicated if or when Phelps might return to training.

USA Swimming banned Phelps from competition for 6 months, and also knocked him off the Long Course World Championship Team.

Presently Phelps appears happy and healthy. He did not attend the 2014 Golden Goggles held Nov 23rd where he was honored with the award for Male Athlete of the Year.  Phelps’ North Baltimore Aquatic Club trainer accepted the award on his behalf.

Yeah, right. He can’t even pay back the $6k he owed to his AA based club when he left them.

Are you referring to something specific? I have a hard time believing he is having financial difficulties. I remembering hearing that he would make about $100 million after the 2008 Olympics.

no its not required but as much as I like hearing about every time MP turns over in his sleep, it would be nice to get some info on other swimmers… isn’t there a big meet this week? maybe interview a few people there. just saying, other things happening.

Wait, didn’t the man who received his award say that he is back in the water, indicating that he is back to training?

He looks healthy and happy in that picture, which bodes well for his swimming. And if he swims completely clean (i.e., without any alcohol in his system) from here on, he should come back faster than ever.

I’m glad he’s recovering and wish him the best, but if LeClos is swimming 10K meters in between prelims and finals like another article was suggesting he’s a lock for the 100m/200m fly baring injury in 2016.

It seems to much. I hope he doesn´t overtrain like Lochte in London. I´m still hoping for an amazing match!

Swimhistorian, can you give us an historical example of a world class male swimmer that has swum faster at age 30, than he did at age 24? Legitimate question…….please try to exclude the suit era.

Go USA!
