Michael Phelps discussed his recent dark times following his 2014 DUI arrest and more in a sitdown interview with TODAY’s Matt Lauer.
Phelps, training for his potential fifth Olympics after a 20-month competitive retirement following London 2012, served a six-month suspension last year following his arrest.
He details the downward spiral that culminated in a 45-day rehab stint.
Since coming back, Phelps has posted the world’s fastest times since 2009 in the 100m and 200m butterflies since the London Olympics.
