Eight medals, including six gold and two bronze. Michael Phelps used the Olympic Games in Athens as his breakout event. Already known in the swimming world for the summer of 2003 when he set seven world records in 41 days, Michael’s record-tying medal haul made him a mainstream name. He’s well on his way to his ambitious goal of "changing the sport of swimming," but despite Michael’s pre-eminence in the pool, his story is not a swimming diary but a tale of adversities overcome and redemption through persistence.
Michael Phelps: Beneath the Surface is a first-person account of Michael's journey to manhood and Olympic glory—from a toddler who was afraid to put his face in the water to a student overcoming an attention deficit disorder to a son dealing with his parents’ divorce to a brother who watched an older sister narrowly miss making the Olympic team to the athlete who carried his nation’s hopes on his shoulders in Athens, and delivered against such high expectations.
