Bode Miller Thinks Michael Phelps Underachieved In Regards To Partying On An Olympic Level

This paparazzi photo from a recent Las Vegas weekend shows an introspective Phelps with the weight of the world, or at least all those gold medals, on his shoulders. Phelps was not invited to fellow Olympian Bode Miller’s star studded party held in a stretch Jacuzzi limousine parked in the fountain outside of the Bellagio hotel.

Nashua, NH—Uber-swimmer Michael Phelps may have left the 2012 Olympic Games in London as the most accomplished Olympic athlete of all time with 22 medals, but not everyone is so happy with his performance. Winter Olympics “athlete” Bode Miller said he wonders if the experiences Phelps had during his Olympics trips to Sydney, Athens, Beijing and London have really made him a better person overall.

“I mean, yeah, that’s great and all, 20 medals or whatever,” Miller said. “But, I mean, what sort of experiences are you bringing back from the Olympics, bro? How many other dudes and chicks did you meet and party with, you know? Is your life really enriched by medals? It’s about the dream of socializing and sharing experiences with other people from other walks of life in other countries, and the Olympics is really the best way to do that.”

Miller said he once had hope for Phelps’ personal development, but it was short-lived. “I remember when it came out (in 2009) about him smoking a bowl at that college party,” Miller said, “and I thought, ‘Whoa! Finally, this guy lets loose. This is the Michael Phelps I’ve been waiting for, this is the Michael Phelps I want to hang with.’ But then he came right back and apologized, and said he was wrong, and I was like, ‘What? Bro, what are you doing?’ And I just had to shake my head because it’s so obvious that he hasn’t been true to himself. And I really am really scared about his future, you know, as a man, as an individual and so on and so forth. I don’t know, you know?”

Miller said he would encourage every child in the country to try and get into the Olympics, either summer or winter, so that they, too, could party and socialize on an Olympic level, “which is what this great country was founded on and (stuff), what our …forefathers wanted and (stuff). And maybe, hopefully one day, Phelps will …get that.”
