Michael Phelps celebrates retirement by partying in Las Vegas, winning in poker
Michael Phelps didn’t labor too hard over the holiday weekend. The swimming wizard continued his post-Olympics world traveling tour by spending some time in Las Vegas.
We’re told Phelps partied at Encore Las Vegas with training partner Allison Schmitt and poker player Phil Hellmuth on Friday, even taking his turn spinning records along with Afrojack (pictured below). Fellow swimmers Nathan Adrian and Charles Houchin joined him at the pool the next day when Phelps received a cake celebrating his retirement (pictured).
TMZ also reports that Phelps, a serious poker player, won $100,000 playing cards at Caesar’s Palace, though Phelps said the report was false.
No word on when Phelps will begin swimming with sharks.
