Michael Phelps' Girlfriend, Megan Rossee, Not A Preferred Topic Conversation For U.S. Olympian

Posted: Updated:

Michael Phelps was willing to talk about a lot of subjects in one of his final media functions before he departs from London.

One thing he wouldn't talk about: his girlfriend, Megan Rossee, who's been very prominent on the arm of the most decorated Olympian in history since the end of swimming at the London Games.

I broached the subject as he was leaving the room, and Phelps gave one of his classic non-answers.

"It's great to have a lot of support from my family and friends," he said, breaking into a big smile.

Then, just before leaving the room, he stopped and shouted my way.

"Hey, Paul, you knew that was the answer you were going to get," he said, grinning even more.

Then he was gone.
