    I noticed that Michael has a long torso ad short legs. My body is the opposite.

    I don't really pay attention to the olympics much, the opening was very beautifully done though, but anyways I have to say Michael Phelps is quite the hottie with a body lol

    I agree. She did her interview, leave her alone for a minute.

    In one of the million segments they did on him, they said he is 6-foot-5, but his legs are the length of a normal 6-foot guy. He's long waisted. But it certainly works for him in the pool! So does his double jointedness. Is he still in Beijing? If so, I hope he and the other swimmers are enjoying the sights and NOT working out and get to participate in the closing ceremonies. None of them participated in the opening ceremonies 'cause their heats started the next day.

    He was in the stands when the USA bb played ? on Monday. Looked like he was having a great time kicking back with a few friends. Also saw on the news that he was filming a commercial in the pool at the Hilton. Don't know where though.

    I REALLY admire his mom for treating his ADHD with a healthy activity vs. drugs.

    You know, quite a few Olympians got their starts because they had some issues to deal with as kids. Kristi Yamaguchi had feet/leg problems when she was little so her parents put her in figure skating classes to get stronger. I remember reading that some gymnasts became gymnasts because they were hyper active and their parents wanted an outlet for all their energy.

    I don't know enough about ADHD to know when drugs are necessary--and I'm sure in some cases drugs are the best way--but I always think it's beneficial all around if the child can be drug-free.

    Thats the reason my Daughter is in TKD, and she loves it.. for as much as she will not listen to me.. her teacher has yet to yell at her in class for not listening to him She soaks it all up and even advanced to her next belt 3 weeks before the rest of her class (sorry proud parent moment).
    I put her in TKD 1, because she siad it would be fun.. and wanted to try. Now she loves it. 2, and to me the biggest reason to try it.. was to avoid the ADHD drugs that so many Dr's want to throw at kids because it's an easy 'fix'. I don't think she has ADHD but this has helped her in MANY ways and I am thankful that she has progressed so quickly and loves it.. I cant say enough how much she loves it.

    And they said he had the torso of somebody who is 6'6"! 6' legs with a 6"6' torso is quite a combination. Interesting for somebody who is neither height.
