Michael Phelps Donates $1 Million to Inspire Lil Swimmers

His mama must be proud! It seems that golden boy Michael Phelps, who struggled with ADHD in his youth and found his focus in the swimming pool, is hoping to pass that passion on to other water babes. The winningest Olympian just established The Michael Phelps Foundation with the hefty bonus his sponsor Speedo awarded him for breaking Mark Spitz's record. A report said:

“I feel it's only appropriate that I continue the momentum that Speedo helped to create by committing my bonus to the establishment of the Michael Phelps Foundation, which I hope will help me inspire others to achieve their dreams, and give back to the sport that has given me so much,” Phelps added in a statement.

The athlete hopes the million dollars will help grow the sport and expose children to swimming.
