Michael Phelps Regrets Bong Pic

Michael Phelps has responded to the scandal surrounding his bong pic by saying he regrets what he has done.

In a statement, Phelps said

“I engaged in behavior which was regrettable and demonstrated bad judgment. I’m 23 years old and despite the successes I’ve had in the pool, I acted in a youthful and inappropriate way, not in a manner people have come to expect from me. For this, I am sorry. I promise my fans and the public it will not happen again.”

Experts are saying that the damage is done, and along with a serious risk to his swimming career, the photo could cost him tens of millions in endorsements.

Phelps could be banned from swimming for up to 4 years if he proves positive to a drugs test, although it’s not clear yet whether the photograph alone would be sufficient evidence for a ban.
