An Olympian in Training: Is Boomer Phelps taking after his dad?

Picture it, the Olympics in 2032 and Phelps is on deck for the 200m fly.

But it isn’t Michael- it’s Boomer Phelps in the lead! And USA wins the gold!

Well maybe, he’s only 6 months. But he did start swim lessons, so anything’s possible.

Got to have my swim lesson before we left! So much fun! @mp_swimschool #learntoswim

Michael took his son to take lessons from Cathy Bennett. She taught him how to swim way back when in Baltimore and now its time for round two. Bennett now runs the Michael Phelps Swim School.

And Boomer is adjusting, adorably to say the least.  Michael went live during Boomer’s lesson and you can watch the little fish in action here.
