NO, Mr. Phelps, you are the CEO of your career - This nonsense confirmed by AP:
ROME — Michael Phelps' coach has threatened to withhold the swimmer from international meets until FINA bans high-tech bodysuits.
Swimming's governing body, FINA, upheld a decision Tuesday to outlaw the suits next year, although the ban might not take effect until April or May — three or four months later than expected.
Told of the possible delay, Phelps' coach, Bob Bowman, said FINA better "do something or they're going to lose their guy who fills these seats."
Boy, is my face red and I am so embarrassed by Bowman's arrogance.
He actually threatened FINA and the health of USA Swimming's international win-column!
Michael Phelps being so ill advised and now American swimming has a new "Ugly American" and his name is Bob Bowman.
