23-time Olympic gold medalist swimmer Michael Phelps has been bestowed the "USA Swimming Award." He was recognized at the United States Aquatic Sports Convention.
The coveted "USA Swimming Award" recognizes exceptional contributions to the sport of swimming. For over 20 years, Phelps has transformed aquatics and has helped mold it into the sport that it is today.
Throughout his accomplished career in swimming, Phelps won a record-breaking 28 medals at the Olympic level, 23 of which were gold. At the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, Phelps set a record with eight gold medal wins, breaking Mark Spitz' previous record of seven golds.
At the World Championship level, from 2001 to 2011, Phelps won 33 medals, where 26 medals were gold.
Phelps is only the second athlete to ever receive this recognition, where he joins Mary T. Meagher, who was the recipient of this prestigious award in 1981.
Michael Phelps and his family were recently featured in Nulo's brand new "Know Better" campaign, where they are encouraging pet owners to become educated about commonly used pet food ingredients and their nutritional efficacy.
Aside from his swimming endeavors, Phelps is the proud owner of two French bulldogs, Juno and Legend, and he is working with Nulo, in an effort to inspire other pet parents to live healthier together.
