Michael Phelps

The most winningest Olympian ever, Michael Phelps, can also claim to be a one-time student of the University of Michigan. Because of Phelps’ professional status, he could not swim for the Wolverines. But that’s ok – he just competed in the 2004 and 2008 Olympics instead.

Phelps enrolled at University of Michigan in 2005 but never graduated. While there, he pursued a degree in Sports Marketing and Management, according to JockBio.com. During these Olympic Games, Phelps has stated repeatedly that these are his last Olympics; so maybe with his upcoming free time, he’ll head back to college to complete that degree.

Who is your favorite Olympian so far from the London Games?
