Phelps: 'I Will Not Have Kids'


Michael Phelps, in a sit-down interview with Time Magazine, stated that he has no plans on having children, and in fact, would refuse to do so with a partner.  "Why would I want to breed?  There is unequivocally no point--I am the best, and any offspring will taint my genetic makeup."  Phelps went on to explain that if any children were produced "by accident" he would raise them completely in the underwater, even though it would pose an immediate risk to the child.  

When the interviewer asked if Michael would feel threatened if his children were swimmers, and thus perhaps breaking his records, Phelps sat in a nearby water fountain, and challenged the reporter to a race.  Time said it would release photos later today.
