Michael Phelps  Father of two. Husband to @mrs.nicolephelps Former Olympian

10 years ago after winning 8 golds in Beijing I received a million dollar bonus. There was one thing and one thing only that I wanted to do with that bonus. I started the @mpfoundation ! At the Michael Phelps foundation we are working to teach the importance water safety and how to live healthy and active lifestyles. And since becoming aware of the importance of my own mental health we have worked hard to add a mental health awareness component. I’m incredibly proud of how far my foundation has come, but there’s still more work to be done!!!

10 years ago today i had the chance to share the pool with these guys once again. I couldn’t have asked for better teammates to share this amazing moment with!! #aaronpeirsol @brendanhansen12 and @jason_lezak . I know as being a part of team USA how important the TEAM is! Thank you boys and I can’t tell you how much of an honor it was!!! These guys and others helped me make history and do something that so many ppl thought was impossible!

10 years ago today...this race came down to the closest margin of victory. .01(one one hundredth of a sec 🙈)!! Faster than you can snap your fingers or even the blink of your eye!! This is THE race of my life right?!! Haha it has to be!! Still to this day it shocks me! #memories

This is one thing I look at before I start my day. We all can agree some days are more of a struggle than others. But always know that anything is possible! But first you’ve gotta believe you CAN do it!!

The world knows me as a 28-time medalist. But for me, sometimes my greatest accomplishment was getting out of bed. When depression hits, it can become debilitating and feel like nothing really matters. That’s why I’ve joined forces with @Talkspace –– to remind you that you don’t have to wait for things to get worse. If you’re struggling, I encourage you to get help. Working with a therapist was one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself. I believe it can help you too.

What a weekend! Watching the boys out there was epic!! Couldn’t ask for a more exciting leaderboard on Sunday. @dmahoney1971 and I had the chance to play the course today to cap it off! #pgachampionship

10 years ago today I had the privilege of sharing the lane with these boys while representing our country at the Olympic Games. Fun facts: 1. We were underdogs going into finals 2. We won by .08 3. Jason Lezak’s anchor leg was the fastest relay split in history (46.0) 4. 5 of the 8 teams in the final heat broke the existing world record.
