So what’s next for the most decorated Olympian of all-time? Will he set his sights on a career as a singer, perhaps bring his swag to the fashion runway, what about acting? Well, none of the above. Michael Phelps will take his gold-medal stroke to a different track following his Olympic career: with goals play the world’s greatest golf courses and improve his swing under the watchful eye of Hank Haney. Will he take golf serious enough to earn his tour card? After all he is a world-class athlete, and who doesn’t love spending more time on the greens. The Team USA superstar has four more years to tune-up his game so he can compete in the 2016 Olympic games (in golf) … and take home even more gold. Mr. Phelps, may your balls stay on the straight and narrow.

The Twitter troll that was harassing British diver Tom Daley was arrested as Olympic social media woes continue. Sportsmanship, especially relating to social media appears to be a thing of the past, particularly in relation to the London 2012 Games.

It’s a relief to know there is still some level of accountability for the fans in the actual arena and also in the Twitter arena.
