Olympic great caught on camera smoking pot

2008 Olympic hero Michael Phelps has recently been partying a little too hard, or so the pictures imply. Pictures have surfaced that include Phelps taking bong hits (thats marijuana!) with a group of friends while he was visiting them in South Carolina. The partygoers also mentioned that Phelps was pounding beers and throwing back shots before he hit the bong.

“He looked just as natural with a bong in his hands as he does swimming in the pool. He was the gold medal winner of bong hits,” said one witness.

Michael Phelps is set to make about $100 million in endorsements with companies like Visa, Powerbar, and A T & T. However, Phelps agent Peter Carlisle has said that the surfacing pictures could cause fatal for the endorsements and the cash.

Michael Phelps has been in trouble before, therefore this doesn’t really surprise me. He is a young guy with a lot of money but not enough self-control. The real question in this whole story is: where did the pictures come from? The New York Post is reporting that the incident happened in Columbia, South Carolina on November 6th. Why did someone wait three months to turn the pictures in? And, if he was hanging out with friends, why would they try to take him down?

I’m not saying that I don’t think Michael Phelps smokes pot, but I am a little skeptical about the recent photos.

    Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate your support. Yea, this isn’t the brightest thing a World-star athlete can do.

    I’m a little upset that his friends are scumbags and pretty much ruining his career. I feel like anyone should be able to do whatever they want to do in private, assuming that the activity doesn’t harm society or constitute the man/woman of cheating. Obviously smoking pot isn’t going to enhance his swim game but maybe he should think about smoking in private. No?

    Thanks again,
