VIDEO: Coach Bob Bowman Explains Why Michael Phelps is Scratching 200 Free

Michael Phelps’ coach Bob Bowman discusses Michael Phelps’ prelims swims from Thursday at the Charlotte Grand Prix, and also talks about dropping the 200 free.

What’s become really interesting in this narrative is how much fun everybody in North Baltimore seems to be having right now. Bowman has said this week multiple times that he, too, took about a year off, and the whole group seems as focused as ever, but more relaxed, and as though they’re enjoying the process more. There’s more laughing, more smiling, and more candid openness. Things are going well in North Baltimore

Interesting interview. A little short but interesting.
Mr Bowman looks relaxed and confident.
On the other hand I can understand that.
He no longer has pressure and stress with MP.
Everything now is fun and bonus.
