Michael Phelps’ Mom Makes an Oops
Michael Phelps was on his way to winning the gold in the 200 butterfly. His mom and sisters were anxiously waiting and cheering. He had a half-body lead right up to the end. So his mom began cheering and jumping, only to find out he had come in second.
She was celebrating and jumping and clapping, then she realized what had happened. Oh, the poor look on his mom’s face! The pictures are priceless. We’ve all had that “we’re gonna win” moment as a parent. I feel for Debbie Phelps.
