Michael Phelps projected to win two more gold medals at 2016 Olympics


A projection system run 500 days before the start of the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janiero has the world’s most decorated Olympian, Michael Phelps, picking up two more gold medals in what would be his fifth trip to the Games. 

The projection system, run by the Dutch company Infostrada Sports and posted by NBC Sports, has Phelps winning the 200-meter individual medley and 100-meter butterfly — both events he’s won gold medals in for the last three Olympics. 

The Rodgers Forge native already has 22 total medals, including 18 golds (11 individual golds), and 13 individual medals. These two individual medals would give him 15, the all-time record for individual medals by a male or female. 

Of course, Phelps has to go to Brazil and compete for these to either be a possibility. He hasn’t officially said one way or another whether he would compete in what would be his age-31 summer. But since he returned to competition, most everyone thinks he will.
