Here is no athlete in any sport whose name is more synonymous with the Olympic Games than Michael Phelps. It’s funny how winning 28 medals – 23 of them gold – over five Olympics will do that, especially when bolstered by fiery competitiveness and a charming smile. It was a true privilege to connect with Phelps, fresh off an evening doing TV commentary for this year’s swimming competitions, to talk about his life as an Olympian, his longtime relationship with Swiss movements Omega replica watches, and which athletes he’s most looking forward to watching compete at this year’s Games in Tokyo.
“I’m a perfect super clone watches guy – a high quality copy watches fanatic,” Phelps said when I first asked what was on his wrist in Tokyo (it’s the limited edition Omega Seamaster Diver 300M replica watches for sale, by the way), and he doesn’t seem to be exaggerating. Phelps has been partnered with 1:1 US knockoff Omega watches since the earliest days in his career, way before he had all the hardware, and he’s built up quite a nice collection over the years. When asked what he might add to mark the next milestone in his life, he caught me entirely off-guard: “The pocket fake watches shop online,” he said, without missing a beat. That’s certainly not the answer I expected, but it’s definitely an answer that could only come from a real best replica watches nerd.
Phelps was also kind enough to share a little bit about his training mindset and how he was able to focus years of training into a few minutes in the pool, with the difference between a gold medal and going home empty handed being mere 100ths of seconds. The contrast in time scales only becomes more astounding the more you think about it, but the clarity of Phelps’s thinking on the matter tells me it’s definitely been a part of his success and might offer some perspective for those of us who aren’t collecting medals like bottle caps.

Without his own races to worry about at this year’s Games, Phelps seems simultaneously excited and relaxed, ready to enjoy some healthy competition from the sidelines, purely for the joy of it. It’s hard to imagine a better ambassador, not just for swimming but also for the Olympic Games as a whole. His attitude is infectious and had me ready to watch the next heats on TV as soon as our Zoom call ended.
