Watch: Michael Phelps gives tour of Olympic Training Center

Thursday May 5th, 2016

Michael Phelps is getting ready for the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro and has been putting in countless hours of training at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs.

The 18-time Olympic gold medalist recently starred in an Under Armour commercial that featured clips of the toils on the human body of chasing an Olympic dream.

After wrapping up a training session on Wednesday, Phelps and coach Bob Bowman gave a tour of the Olympic Training Center on his personal Facebook.

“It's eat, sleep and swim here,” Phelps said.
