So, I stumbled across this multi-part documentary on YouTube Serie "Miracle Body" - Michael Phelps - Parte 1 - YouTube.

Only thing is, it's in SPANISH! AAAARGH, I'm sure you all understand how frustrating it is to watch Bob Bowman obviously talking about technique and not understand what the hell he's saying.

Now I wish I had paid attention in high school foreign language. :bitching:

Who here is fluent in Spanish? Could you provide the forum with a transcript? :) It would be mucho appreciado.

It looks like it was part of a Discovery Channel series played only in Canada in 2008. Each segment was about 45 minutes long. It sounds very interesting. I can't find it, but I'll keep looking because I'd also love to see it. Here's a link to a discussion about it on a different website.

Well, I understand it, but as far as translating it for everyone that would be a bit much for me, and would take a while, though I could probably translate about 70-80% of it.

It would be mucho appreciado. They were saying that if he were to grow a beard that the Dos Equis man will have a new replacement. Unfortunately the facial hair will slow him down. And he should really try and break some more records before retiring.

Bowman strongly agrees. And hopes that he will make enough endorsement money to support him through his old age. Because honestly, he's not very good at anything else but swimming.

his upper torso is longer than most, which helps in swimming.
He has big feet & muscles to make them work for him.
No, I can just get thru French sometimes.
