Michael Phelps: the man behind the winning streaks

Aug 10, 2016, 00:45

As South African swimmer Chad le Clos warmed up in front of Phelps, moving around and dancing while listening to music in his headphones, he appeared to get some icy stares from the USA swimmer.

The sight of Phelps grilling Le Clos created a raft of new memes.

The memes are amusing, but so is the video complete with the commentators talking about how they could watch Phelps angrily stare at le Clos all day long.

Phelps will compete for the 20th gold medal of his career Tuesday night.

Last year, the South African was offended by comments Phelps made about the lack of speed in the sport. After winning the 100m butterfly at the 2015 world championships, Le Clos told Eurosport: "I just did a [100m butterfly] time that [Phelps] hasn't done in four years, so he can keep quiet now".
