Michael Phelps in Hot Water

4 years ago

Most decorated Olympian Michael Phelps, may be stripped of his medals due to Rule 40, which states that athletes cannot promote any non-Olympic sponsors from July 18-August 15th. I call bull on that.
To have medals that you have worked hard for snatched away because of a leaked photo is ridiculous really. Louis Vuitton had the release date set at August 16th, someone obviously didn`t get the memo and released it on the 15th. Oh well, I`m sure someone will say my bad for the 1 day miscalculation and IOC will look over it.
Besides enforcing such a act will make the IOC look bad in the eyes of the world.

What do you think? Is the IOC ridiculous on calling Phelps out on this? Or is it jus a small fluke?
