Michael Phelps discussed his recent dark times following his 2014 DUI arrest and more in a sitdown interview with TODAY’s Matt Lauer.
Phelps, training for his potential fifth Olympics after a 20-month competitive retirement following London 2012, served a six-month suspension last year following his arrest.
He details the downward spiral that culminated in a 45-day rehab stint.
Since coming back, Phelps has posted the world’s fastest times since 2009 in the 100m and 200m butterflies since the London Olympics.
He can qualify for the Olympic team at the U.S. Olympic Trials from June 26-July 3 in Omaha, broadcast on NBC Sports.
