Michael Phelps reveals his extraordinary Olympic Games journey.

As a veteran of five Olympic Games over two and half decades, Michael Phelps is well acquainted with the time and dedication required to achieve gold.

In this exclusive interview with OMEGA produced to celebrate Olympic Day, the legendary swimmer opens up on everything from his 24-hour training routine to his most unforgettable medal-winning moments. Including his narrow-margin victory over Cavic, in which OMEGA timekeeping played a crucial role.
