Michael Phelps just gave his rivals yet another reason to hope he doesn't return to competitive swimming.

TMZ recently caught up with Olympic champion Michael Phelps and asked him a few important questions. One of those questions was whether he peed during any of his races.

"Everyone pees in the pool," said Phelps, who looked noticeably annoyed by the paparazzi. It's normal for everyone to pee in the pool."

Phelps' admission might not come as a surprise to some. Last year, former USA Swimming National Team member Carly Geehr claimed that "nearly 100% of elite competitive swimmers pee in the pool."
