Yahoo is reporting that Olympian Ronda Rousey is criticizing fellow Olympian Michael Phelps for being a bit stand-offish. Rousey, who won a bronze medal in judo at the Beijing Olympics, said that at a party for all American Olympians, all the athletes, including NBA players, happily mingled, but Phelps held back.
“I didn’t even want to go out of my way to say hello to that guy. Get over yourself. All you do is swim. If someone slapped you every time you jumped in the pool, I might have a little respect, but I was a swimmer before I did this stuff, and you can’t tell me that swimming is OH MY GOD, because it’s not,” said Rousey.
