Could it be true? This article (http://swimswam.com/michael-phelps-denies-comeback-via-twitter-sort-of/) says he is headed for the Olympic Training Center to start his training this weekend. Phelps' tweet suggests that there is no comeback but he doesn't make an outright denial, either.

I doubt he is coming back,but if he is he'll have to wait 9 mon to return to USA-S meets.That means if he wanted to compete he'd need to join USMS.I doubt that wouls happen,but wouldn't that be cool.

Guess he figured out that getting good at golf is a lot harder than it seems.

Why does he have to wait 9 months to compete at a USA sanctioned meet Allen?

He has to be available for drug testing for 9 mo. before competition.

I wouldn't be surprised if he makes a comeback for Rio. I would be surprised if he's back in the pool already.
