Baltimore Sun: "Michael Phelps has no plans to return to competitive swimming" - Lochte is suspicious!

Rival and reality TV star Ryan Lochte jumps in with a prediction like a weatherman telling you for sure it's going to rain.

From the Baltimore Sun:

"...Man, people will believe anything that's written, anything that's on TV," Phelps said. "There's nothing in the works with me coming back to swimming. This is a part of my life I'm enjoying. I've never had freedom like this. I live on my own time. I play golf three or four times a week. I wake up whenever I want. I have a few things to do here and there, but mostly my time is mine. I'm not thinking about changing that.."

Not sure why people are so convinced he'll be back. In 2010 we all thought he was gonna retire before London. He didn't, but he barely put enough work to be competitive and win some more medals. He'll be 31 in 2016 and he has nothing left to prove.

I wouldn't be surprised if NBC, USA Swimming and FINA pay him to come back.

Also, as I mentioned before I think Under Armor wants to leverage his clout in 2016 as well.

Personally, I wish he would leave. WHen he does, techsuits will come back to level the playing shoe much like the oversized tennis racket did for tennis.
