15-Year-Old Michael Phelps Talks About His Olympic Dreams (Video)

An old, local news interview of Michael Phelps has surfaced after the sports producer shared the excerpt on Reddit. The interview happened in June 2001, after Phelps attended, and failed to medal at, the 2000 Summer Olympics. Phelps talked about his hopes of earning a gold medal at the 2004 Olympics.

As we already know, he bested that goal, winning eight medals—six of them gold—at the 2004 games.
