    You have got to be kidding me.
    I would give him another medal FOR that picture.

    "... according to the International Olympic Committee, athletes participating in the Games cannot promote non-Olympics sponsors from July 18 to August 15."

    If he did the photo shoot before July 18, he'll keep his medals.

    If not, he's fucked.

    It is never going to happen. He cannot control if the pictures were leaked during this period.

    I'd rather see Tom Daley in a bathtub... icon_smile.gif

    Phelps is a great athlete no doubt, but I really don't want him in my bed.

    It looks like he has chest hair in this photo. If the photo was taken during the Olympics, I would assume his chest would be shaved.

    Not shabby at all. He looks like he is in one of the tubs at my old St. Regis condo.

    His agent makes it sounds as though he did break the rule and that everyone does it and it's not a big deal!

    No it's all a publicity stunt. Who creates publicity stunts? The agent. Get it now?

    Not likely .... it was a leaked photo and not actually released as an ad ... Since he would never had access to the photos and contractually they were not suppose to release them, I'll bet if he looses them there is going to be one major law suite ... and it will probably take years, but Louis Vuitton is going to pay out the ass for it

    The ad campaign was not public until August 16. Someone leaked the photos before that date, both Vuitton and Phelps deny they were responsible for the leak.

    If he loses his medals for this I'll be pissed.
    The IOC really needs to get a life.
