Spotted: Michael Phelps Seen On Deck at Minneapolis Grand Prix

The guys from TakeItLive, the company that produces most of the live streams you see at big meets in the United States, spotted a celebrity at this week’s Grand Prix meet. Michael Phelps, the 22-time Olympic medalist.

No, he wasn’t in a suit, but he was on deck hanging out on the diving platforms with the active members of the North Baltimore Aquatic Club, and sporting what seems to be a throwback Baltimore Orioles hat. And you’ll be happy to know – his mustache is back.

Meanwhile, NBAC swimmers Yannick Agnel and Conor Dwyer took the top two seeds in the morning prelims of the 200 yard freestyle, with times of 1:34.10 and 1:34.27, respectively.
