Michael Phelps not so golden anymore

February 6, 2009

Michael Phelps, the golden boy of the Beijing Olympics, is starting to see some fallout from his bong smoking incident.  USA Swimming his hit Phelps with a very lenient three month suspension on on competing and since there are no major events in the next three months this equals a slap on the wrist. They stated that they wanted to send a message about conduct and that this suspension is not the result of violating the groups anti-doping rules.  On top of the suspension Phelps also was dropped from Kellogg’s, a major sponsor, due to the controversy.
