IBM is proud to announce that Michael Phelps will address the audience at Pulse 2009 in Las Vegas, NV.
On August 16, 2008 Michael Phelps etched his name in Olympic history by winning his eighth gold medal of the Beijing Olympic Games, surpassing Mark Spitz for the most gold medals in a single Olympics. Seven of his eight wins set new world records, and with the addition of his six gold medals from the 2004 Olympics, Phelps has now won the most Olympic gold medals in history.
Phelps has been making waves in the world of sports since he was young. He tied the record for the most medals at a single Olympics in the 2004 Athens Summer Olympic Games when he earned six gold medals and eight medals overall. Already a sports legend at the age of 22, he has been named World Swimmer of the Year for three out of the last four years (2003, 2004, and 2006).
Although he is young, he has already had a lifetime of experiences—in the pool and out. He founded “Swim with the Stars”—the first ever Olympic Swimming Tour that travels the country to give kids the opportunity to learn from the best. He is also a national spokesperson for the Boys & Girls Clubs.
Phelps is the illustration of dedication and passion, practicing 365 days a year. His results speak for themselves.
