Eight Olympic medals, including six gold and two bronze in 2004, Michael Phelps is the current holder of six world records, and seven gold medals at the 2007 World Aquatics Championships.

He recalls his experiences as a student at the University ofPhelps, Michael is the author of 'Michael Phelps', published 2008 under ISBN 9781596703520 and ISBN 1596703520.
