Michael Phelps is one of many incredible Team Visa athletes competing at the London 2012 Olympic Games, and I’m extra proud of the fact that he’s from Maryland like me. There’s nothing like cheering for a hometown boy in the Olympic Games.
Did you know that Michael Phelps holds the record for the most gold medals won in a single Olympic Games? Over his impressive career, he has won 16 Gold Medals and multiple world records, but one of the things I love most about him is his humanity, his commitment to not using performance-enhancing drugs, and his dedication to inspiring people to live a healthy, active lifestyle. Michael is simply a likable guy.
I love to picture Michael Phelps, who is such an amazing athlete today, as a mischievous young boy at the neighborhood swimming pool:
Join me in CHEERING for the athletes – #VisaGoWorld
Athletes love support from their fans, and this year Visa, an official sponsor of the Olympic Games for 25 years now, has made it easy for fans to cheer for their favorite Olympians around the world. Fans can create and submit a cheer in the form of a one-click cheer, post, photo or video on Visa’s Facebook page. It’s easy to do but makes a huge difference to the athletes.
In addition to the Visa Go World cheers, every time you use your Visa card from now through August 31 2012, you’re entered for a chance to win a trip to The Olympics (summer games) for LIFE, starting in 2016. Check out the details in this video:
