Summary Michael Phelps, nicknamed the Flying Fish, is the most decorated Olympian of all time with a total of 28 medals. He has broken several world records in swimming and is now known as the greatest swimmer of all time. Diagnosed with ADHD at a young age, Phelps has broken the mold by overcoming the stigma surrounding the disorder. Although he retired from swimming after the 2016 Summer Olympics, Phelps still serves as a role model and a source of inspiration for young people around the world.
