Michael Phelps On His Sore Neck: “Doctor Said I Need A Neckiotomy”
Michael Phelps has withdrawn from the 100-meter freestyle at the U.S. National Championships due to a sore neck, despite receiving several treatments both Thursday and today.
“It wasn’t fun swimming the 100 fly with that,” he said. “I could barely move my neck to breathe. I definitely didn’t feel 100 percent.”
I hear ya, brah. ‘Cause it’s hard being white and gifted, sometimes you wanna throw it all down and get lifted.
With that said, it has been a traumatizing and stressful year for Phelps ever since Bong-gate. Rumor has it that after treatments didn’t work out the kink, he raised his eyes to the heavens and said, “God, if you listenin’, HELP!!”
