Michael Phelps: A real class act

April 02, 2012

We really enjoyed Jean Marbella's article aboutMichael Phelps ("In his 'last year,' Phelps thoughtful," March 29).

My family and I have always been huge fans of Michael Phelps. We met him and his mom, Debbie, at a golf event several years ago. My elderly mom, Trudy, who closely follows his career, was treated as a special guest of the Phelps' at the event and it really meant a lot to her.

Ms. Marbella describes Michael as a happy, contented guy who continues to give kids an opportunity to get into swimming. He is a real class act. Baltimore and the rest of the country are looking forward to cheering him on in his final Olympics this summer.
