Last night, Anderson Cooper profiled Baltimore’s Michael Phelps, who grew up in Rodgers Forge, on “60 Minutes” about the Olympic champ’s early struggles with his new found fame and finding the fire within to go for the gold again.
Cooper, who challenged Phelps to a one lap race when he interviewed him in 2008, again tested his swimming skills against Phelps. Last time, Cooper lost, comparing the race to competing against a dolphin.
They raced again, this time with their clothes on playing Phelps’s new video game.
