Michael Phelps went shirtless as he took a dip in the pool at the Fontainebleau hotel in Miami Beach on Wednesday (March 20, 2013). The American swimmer was seen wearing a tiny multicolored speedo and goggles while jumping into the pool and swimming laps in the water. While in Miami, Michael Phelps also denied the speculation that he will be swimming in the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. "It has been an amazing career, and it is crazy to think that it is over,” the 27-year-old Olympic gold medalist shot down those rumors that were started by USA teammate Ryan Lochte last December. “But I've done everything that I wanted to do in sport. I wanted to change swimming and take it to a level, and I have. But I will continue to be a part of sport and help grow sports. That is a goal and a passion of mine.”
