Phelps ‘having fun’ in Moscow
Phelps told Sportbox.ru.
“Hopefully with the [US] team we’ll be able to travel around and see Red Square and other big attractions here in Moscow,” he noted.
“Two years ago I swam in a couple of World Cups, but I didn’t swim as fast as I wanted to. Now I think I’m in a lot better shape than I was then, and if come in with some faster times I will be happy and satisfied,” he said before adding, “The last couple of weeks we’ve had good training and I just want to see where we stand right now.”
So far the American star is yet to amaze the Moscow crowd. On Tuesday, he failed to qualify for the 100-meters freestyle final. Then again, the whole tournament is before him.
