Austin, Texas – The Lee and Joe Jamail Swimming Center saw the greatest Olympian of all time on its deck this morning at the Arena Pro Swim Series Austin prelims. Michael Phelps was seen standing poolside, along with Coach Bob Bowman, looking calm and relaxed, as he watched his fellow North Baltimore Aquatic Club (NBAC) teammates compete. Phelps also was seen at U.S. Winter Nationals in December last year at the Greensboro Aquatic Center.
Phelps is in the midst of serving his 6-month suspension issued by USA Swimming last October for a DUI incident; a charge in which Phelps pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 18-months probation with a one-year suspended jail sentence.
It has been reported that Phelps will be present in a competitive capacity at the Chartres, France stop of the 2015 FINA World Cup Series, but no other competitions for the Olympian have yet been officially announced.
