Michael Phelps' contrasting quotes: "I'm in shape!" - "depends what kind of shape I'm in"
Michael Phelps tells the news magazine show 60-Minutes "...is now approaching the shape he was in before Beijing..." - later tells the Huffington Post when asked how many events he will swim in London: "...It just depends what kind of shape I'm in at that point and what I think my body can handle under those circumstances. ..."
I am going to say what everybody is thinking but nobody will say: He hates his job. He's burned out. He does not want to work out 5-hours each day. Michael Phelps is the greyhound that caught the rabbit and went, "wait a minute, this isn't a rabbit. It's a plushy toy! What the ...! You mean I've been working out 5-hours a day for the past 20-years and all I get is this $1.99 plushy toy. I am in the wrong business. I know, I'll start a dog school and teach other dogs how to chase this thing! Yeah, that's the ticket."
