BALTIMORE —Michael Phelps has made it pretty clear that the Summer Games in Rio was his last Olympics.
If it is the end of his swimming career, Phelps will retire having won a record 28 Olympic medals, 23 of which were gold.
Many in Baltimore wonder how should be recognized locally for his accomplishments. Some have suggested a statue that would go alongside similar ones for Johnny Unitas, Ray Lewis and Brooks Robinson to name a few.
“I think that's a great idea,” one Baltimore resident said. “He's the best all-around athlete there is.”
