Top athlete, current record holder of most Gold Medals at a single Olympics, Michael Phelps swims with his Apple iPod (and sometimes submerged Mac too), and listens to music under water.

With up up to 5 hours of high-intensity swim workout a day, Michael Phelps spends a lot of time under water.

Michael Phelps also uses his iPod when he swims. You might think when Phelps jumps in the water with his iPod and headphones, there would be moisture or liquid damage. But fortunately his iPod is enclosed in waterproof case, and he is wearing water proof headphones. Both goodies are made by H20 Audio.

Phelps Photographed as a Mermaid / Merman

This is probably one of the coolest photo shoot for Michael Phelps.

Famous photographer Annie Leibovitz photographed actress Julianne Moore and swimmer Michael Phelps for Disneyland’s “Year of a Million Dreams” ad campaign.

“Yes, Julianne has a big mermaid tail; it’s interesting,” Leibovitz recalled from the shoot. “Michael, too. His movements were so graceful and beautiful you just felt like you were watching a real merman.”
