Michael Phelps reduced to tears watching his new Under Armour commercial
22-time Olympic medalist Michael Phelps is preparing for one last go in the pool ahead of the 2016 Olympics in Rio. And his latest commercial for Under Armour shows you just how intense Phelps’ preparations are.
From dragging a parachute through the pool to being placed inside crazy machines to cramming sickening amounts of food down his gullet, every beat of this commercial is pretty amazing. And it apparently brought Phelps and his fiancee to tears when they first saw it.

The 30-year-old Phelps said this weekend that a lack of alcohol has been a big key to his workouts in advance of Rio. Phelps was cited for his second DUI in 2015 and entered a 45-day rehab stint, after which he vowed not to drink again before the 2016 Olympics.
