Michael Phelps "dud" headline offends

I'll let this emailer's eloquent message do the heavy lifting: Love him or hate him personally, we couldn't have asked for more stellar performances over the past years than those given by Phelps. Representing our country, Phelps has brought home 16 medals, 14 of them gold
