Olympic Legend Michael Phelps Shares His Secret To Success On His Very First Visit To India

Unless you are living under a rock, you have to have an idea about who Michael Phelps is. Bringing about a revolution in the sport of swimming with more than a decade worth of non-stop dedication to his craft, multiple sessions of 2-3 hours of extreme exertion inside the pool and unbelievably strong self-discipline.

Participating in four summer Olympics (2004-2016) during his time as a professional swimmer, the 33-year-old athlete has had two bronze medals, three silver medals and 23 gold medals placed around his neck. This astonishing feat of 28 medals in totality makes him the most successful Olympian in the history of mankind and the competition is not even close.

It was, therefore, a moment of honour the sporting fraternity of India to host such a remarkable athlete who visited our land for the very first time. As a brand ambassador of Under Armour, a 23-year-old company that manufactures footwear, sports, and casual apparel, Phelps is here to inaugurate their very first commercial outlet that has opened up in DLF Promenade Mall in New Delhi.

During the press gathering of the inauguration, Phelps spoke about the kind of work ethic he used to follow when he was an active swimmer.

“In the sport of swimming… if you miss one day, it takes you two days to get back. So, when I spent six years without missing a single day of training, I was getting so much more benefit than the other athletes,” said the 23-time Olympic gold medalist. “They (other swimmers) used to swim for six days. If you take an off on Sunday, you are not back by Tuesday and that's exactly where I was getting so much of extra benefit.

Phelps also made it absolutely certain that he will not be returning to the pool after retiring from the game in 2016. “Now if I enter the pool, I don't have the same feel...”

“I don't swim anymore. I have lost it,” he jokes.

Another interesting question was raised by Under Armour CEO, Kevin Plank, who seemed to be equally fascinated by the swimmer as the rest of the reporters at the venue. Plank asked: “Do you love winning or hate losing?”

Without hesitating for even a single second, Phelps reverted: “I hate losing. Yes, I do not like to lose. People ask me what goes on inside my mind when I am standing on the swimming block and I say 'nothing does', and that's how it should be. If a race is about to start, I am focused on winning it, and that's just it.”

Phelps is the epitome of dedication and yet one of the most humble human beings to have graced the biggest stage of sports ever, and his regimen plays a huge role in building up such a character out of him.
