Today Michael Phelps went live on Facebook from the Northside Aquatic Center in San Antonio, Texas. The video features appearances from basketball player Tony Parker and questions answered at the end by Allison Schmitt.
The video starts out with Michael and Tony Parker as they discuss the fun practice they just had. Tony joined the team in the water for a power practice and was even pressured into using a parachute. Phelps claims that Tony is a natural breaststroker and that he jumped off the 7 meter.
Most of the video consists of Michael introducing different team members to the Facebook audience. Phelps tells the viewers that he does not in fact play Pokemon Go and hopes to see Boomer one last time before Rio.
On the bus ride, Schmitt talks about that she is most excited for the chance to have a fun and once-in-a-lifetime experience in Rio. She also admits that her favorite sports team is the Pittsburgh Penguins and that she does not currently have a boyfriend.
The Olympic Team will be training in San Antonio until July 21st before heading to the 1996 Olympic pool at Georgia Tech in Atlanta, Georgia. Atlanta was named as the new site for the team’s final pre-Olympic preparations after the originally-planned site in Puerto Rico was scrapped over Zika concerns.
