Michael Phelps: Naked For ESPN Magazine!

by at .

Michael Phelps might be best known racking up gold at the Olympics, but it looks as though the record-breaking swimmer might be qualified for a second career as a nude model.

Phelps stripped down for ESPN Magazine's annual Body Issue and while the Baltimore Bullet may be semi-retired from the world of competitive swimming, from the looks of it, he hasn't been neglecting his gym duties. 

Phelps dated Win McMurry, and played the field with a number of other women since dominating the Beijing Olympics way back in 2008, and it's not hard to see why he's been able to attract the pool groupies. 

With no major competitions on the horizon, Phelps is no longer obligated to remain aerodynamic, so he must have shaved his unfortunate mustache simply because, well..it looked really weird.

Following his meteoric rise to fame, the so-called Flying Fish was involved in a number of scandals, including an incident in which Phelps was photographed smoking pot with a group of college students.

He seems to have settled down in the years since, as most of Phelps' recent headlines have been the result of his philanthropic work.

While he may never return to the Olympics, we get the feeling that Phelps' ESPN pictorial will earn him a slew of new fans.
