Michael Phelps explores his hipster Mark Spitz

There’s nearly nothing Olympic swimming legend Michael Phelps can do that we wouldn’t deem newsworthy. Even growing a mustache. Especially growing a mustache like the swimmer he dethroned as greatest-of-all-time, Mark Spitz.

The newly single 18-time gold medalist was spotted poolside in the Bahamas with friends (and a lovely lady) only a couple weeks after New Years, when news broke that he and his girlfriend of about ten months, Megan Rossee, had split.

He was also competing in the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event, but got knocked out on day two after a solid early showing. So instead, the retired-swimmer-turned-golfer decided it was time to catch some sun and party.

And while we wish we could say that this was Phelps’s most horrendous facial hairstyle to date, we, sadly, cannot.

    If I sport a ‘stache will you do a story on me?

      Yes, so long as you also own 22 Olympic medals. Keep me posted.
