Swimming; Legend Phelps to return to pool
Olympic swimming superstar Michael Phelps, who retired from the sport after taking six medals at the 2012 London Olympics, will make his competitive comeback next week at a US Grand Prix series event.
The 28-tear-old returned to the anti-doping test program last year and his coach, Bob Bowman, had hinted at a comeback, which could see the record 22-time Olympic medalist continue his career all the way to the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics.
Phelps won 4 golds and 2 silvers at London, giving him a record 18 gold medals, including an unprecedented 8 in a single Games at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
