Michael Phelps, regarded as one of the greatest athletes in Olympic history, is returning to the Games, not as a competitor in his sport of swimming, but as a member of Team Panasonic to “inspire today’s youth to dream big and to work hard to make those dreams come true.”

Phelps, who is most decorated Olympian of all time with 28 Olympic medals — 23 gold — will be part of a roster working toward the 2020 Summer Games in Tokyo that also includes five-time Olympic gold medalist Katie Ledecky; Lex Gillette, four-time Paralympic long jump silver medalist; and Sakura Kokumai, Japanese-American Olympic hopeful and seven-time USA national karate champion.
