Michael Phelps’ Feet

On a lighter note, if you’re interested in how biology and genetics influence some of sports’ most dominant stars, check this out.  Ok, that little pitch doesn’t make the article sound as interesting as it really is.  How about this: Michael Phelps (swimmer) has size-14 feet and can lay flat on his back, stretch his legs out straight, and touch the ground with his toes.  Now, this doesn’t at all diminish how hard Michael Phelps has worked throughout his young career, but you gotta admit — the guy basically has flippers.  For more of this type of stuff (Lance Armstrong, Mia Hamm, even Indy car racers), read the article.
