Wanted: Bracelet to Go with Eight Gold Medals

Wanted: Bracelet to Go with Eight Gold Medals

Wednesday, 20 August 2008

Usain Bolt can run pretty damn fast, the Brits seem to be able to win gold medals while sat down, and Michael Phelps is basically a fish. Hopefully he won’t be a fish when he hits the poker tables though, after the multiple gold-medal winner admitted his next target isn’t in the pool but in Las Vegas. Watch out, the 2009 WSOP… Phelps is on his way!

Although the swimmer admits his game still needs some work, he is an ambitious man who doesn’t see why he can’t hit the gold at the poker tables.

“I think it would be cool to play in the World Series of Poker,” Phelps said. “My game is a little off right now, so I’ll have to start improving it a little bit. But I think that would be cool, and it would be cool to meet some of those poker guys.”

The one thing we do know is that while he is an incredible swimmer, not even Mighty Michael will be winning this year’s bracelet, with the final nine already set for the November showdown. When he does take to the tables in 2009 though, many will watch to see how the American record-breaker fares.
