Michael Phelps: 99 seconds with 99 days to go for the 2010 Youth OG (Video)


With the occasion of the 99 days to go for the start of the 2010 Youth Olympic Games in Singapore (August 14-26), Michael Phelps (USA), one of the ambassadors for this competition, gives a 99 second-interview, where he briefly talks about his success, the keys to shine in the pool and addresses a special message to all those participating in Singapore. His words will certainly inspire the future champions, knowing that Phelps is the best swimmer in history, with 14 Olympic gold medals, eight of them conquered in one single edition of the Games, in 2008 in Beijing (an unparalleled feat).

When he was appointed 2010 Youth Olympic Games ambassador, Phelps had declared: “The Youth Olympic Games is an excellent initiative, not only for the athletes competing, but also those who are inspired to get into sport and be more active. I am delighted that I have been given the opportunity to become the first official Ambassador of the Youth Olympic Games, and can’t wait to get working with the YOG team to promote the first event this summer!”
