TOWN HALL Lecture Series presents: Michael Phelps (Evening Session)
February 6 : 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Michael Phelps, the most decorated Olympian, will be joining the TOWN HALL Lecture Series in February. Michael was born in Baltimore, Maryland, and got serious about swimming after joining the North Baltimore Aquatic Club. Phelps, a prodigy at the sport, got close but did not medal at his first Olympics, in Sidney 2000, when he was 15 years old. Michael would go on to dominate the next four Olympic Games, finishing the most decorated athlete at each one. Since retiring from swimming in 2016, he has become a devoted husband and father to three boys; and opened up to the public about his struggles with depression and ADHD throughout his career. He is now an outspoken advocate for mental health awareness. Q&A portion to be moderated by special guest, three-time Olympic Gold Medalist for swimming, Rowdy Gaines.
