Michael Phelps, the most decorated Olympian of all time, has a total of 28 (!!!) Olympic medals — 23 of which are gold.

Now, to me, that’s not only super impressive, but incredibly overwhelming. Like, as a kid, I earned probably five gold medals for the various sports I was in and I lost them all — literally every single one. So, if I had to keep track of 28 medals that are worth more than my car, I’d be super paranoid all the time.

Well, as it turns out, Michael has a special place he keeps all of his medals and only two people in the world know where they are — smart guy.


During a recent interview with Ellen (and Kristen Bell), the 31-year-old athlete not only talked about his secret hiding spot, but about his plans for the future and his son Boomer.

After hearing about Boomer’s love of swimming (yes, he’s already training), Ellen gifted the family with the most adorable baby-sized Olympic pool, racing cap and swim trunks.

You’d better watch out, 2032 Olympics.
