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

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