Phelps to "pen down a new book"
Everyone in this world would have muttered his name atleast once. He's the hero of Beijing and the winner of 8 gold medals in this olympics alone. He's the man none other than Micheal Phelps. After he left for Beijing from his home, he hasn't talked to his father yet. Many gossips about his love towards Stephine rice. Now he's going to write a book titled "Built to Succeed" about his journey of olympics. The book will tell the story behind his historic eight gold medal swims, which resulted in seven world records. It is scheduled to be released in early December.
Phelps also earned a $1 million bonus from swimsuit maker Speedo for winning eight gold medals at the Games and recently signed a deal to be featured on upcoming boxes of Kellogg's Frosted Flakes and Kellogg's Corn Flakes. The New York Daily News reports that he could stand as much as $40 million in endorsements thanks to his success in Beijing.
