Michael Phelps – ABC7

RCLA Town Hall Lecture Series – Michael Phelps

SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) – To be an Olympian takes years of hard work, vigorous training, and a non-stop drive for success.

Getting a look inside the mind of one of the greatest athletes in the world is something most people wouldn’t imagine being able to do. Lucky for the Suncoast, The Ringling College Library Association hosted two world-renowned Olympians on the stage of the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall for an exclusive interview.

On Monday, February 6th audiences were treated to a special conversation between three-time Olympic gold medalist Rowdy Gaines and twenty-three-time gold medalist Michael Phelps. Phelps is widely known as the most decorated athlete to date with a total of twenty-eight medals won in his Olympic career.
