Shaun White and Bar Refaeli sparked further rumors that they are dating when they took in a race at the Olympics in London together.
A look at the career of Michael Phelps, who retired after swimming his final event of the London Olympics on Saturday:
2000 - Makes first Olympic appearance at Sydney Games, becoming youngest male swimmer on the U.S. team at age 15. Finishes fifth in his only event, the 200-meter butterfly.

Michael Phelps became the most decorated athlete in Olympic history two days ago, claiming his 19th medal over three different games and passing famed gymnast Larisa Latynina. Phelps now stands alone at the top of a prestigious mountain, one that few have ever been privileged enough to ascend.
A little Taiwanese animation seems fitting for such a feat, wouldn't you agree?
He says he's done looking at the world through goggles.
And taking all his directions from the black line on the bottom of a pool.
There's no need to restart the debate over whether Michael Phelps is the greatest Olympian ever, at least not on the night he walked off the pool deck and out of competitive swimming for good. Or so he said.
''I could probably sum it...
During its coverage of the 2012 Summer Olympics Opening Ceremony, NBC cut away from a tribute to terrorism victims to air a Ryan Seacrest interview with Michael Phelps.
Seacrest asked Phelps something to the effect of, “If you break the record for the most career Olympic medals, will you be the greatest Olympian ever?”
The correct answer would have been, “That’s a clown...

Michael Phelps may be the most popular athlete in the world right now, but that doesn’t mean he’s above acting like an excited fan when he receives tweets from celebrities.
Phelps, who added to his record Olympic medals total with a gold in the 200-meter individual medley on Thursday, spent a portion of his time the past few days responding to congratulatory tweets. Two in...
It’s fair to say the American medal magnet collected a sack full by conquering water the way England sacked the world when it ruled the seven seas. Everyone goes home a special prize.
If Elizabeth I was brave enough to knight an old pirate like Sir Walter Raleigh, Elizabeth II ought to do the same for our newest buccaneer. Who wouldn’t want to see that happen? Since he broke...

When Michael Phelps woke up Wednesday morning and began scrolling through thousands of Twitter mentions congratulating him on becoming the most decorated Olympian of all time, Michael Phelps found one name in particular that...
Go for the gold -- but should you succeed, be prepared to dole out some gold of your own.
The U.S. Olympic Committee awards prize money to American medal winners: $25,000 for gold, $15,000 for silver, $10,000 for bronze. That prize money is taxed at a rate of 35 percent, Americans for Tax Reform calculated. On top of that, the medals themselves are taxed: You only have to fork over...
Fancy a traditional English fry-up for breakfast? How about a chicken curry or some kimchi? Or would a lamb samosa and some baba ganoush from a halal kitchen be more to your taste?
