Would you rather go for another swimming world record or chill with the Pope?

Posted Jul 31 2009 2:18pm


That' s the question that Michael Phelps was faced with this weekend.

Would the swimming superstar rather rest up for his individual 100-meter butterfly final in Rome on Saturday night or go and hang out with the Pope at Castel Gandolfo, the Pope' s summer place near Rome?

Pope Benedict XVI had invited about a hundred swimmers from the World Championships taking place in Rome to visit with him on Saturday including American swimmer Michael Phelps.

So what did Phelps choose?

According to his coach Bob Bowmen Phelps will be resting on Saturday after  three races Friday to get ready for the 100 IM on Saturday night.

So no Pope pad visit for Phelps.
