While many around the U.S. hold out hope that Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps will return for the 2016 Summer Games in Rio, Phelps has warmed up to retirement life and has no regrets about walking away from the pool following the 2012 London Olympics.

Phelps told WCHS News’ Bill Green at the development for his Michael Phelps Skill Center in Saco, M.E., that he is happy with his life as a retired swimmer.

“I’ve said nothing about a comeback,” Phelps told the news station. “I have said nothing about a comeback. It’s everybody else opening their mouths and saying comments that they think I’m going to do or think that I said. I’ve never said anything publicly.”
