Michael Phelps distracts Oregon State free throw shooter with medals, Speedo (Video)
Michael Phelps made an appearance in the Arizona State student section Friday night to distract Oregon State free throw shooters.
The Sun Devils are famous for their “Curtain of Distraction,” in which some sort of distraction is unveiled from behind the curtain as an opponent is about to shoot free throws. Friday, the distraction was Phelps, wearing a Speedo and a pile of Olympic gold medals.

Clearly, it worked. Not only did Oregon State miss those two free throws, they went just 9-20 for the contest and lost to Arizona State by 18. The Curtain of Distraction lived up to its name.
One thing is for certain: Phelps is fond of wearing those Speedos around in public.
