The Story of Lucas Phelps
Lucas Phelps was arrested for exchanging child pornography online when he was 37 years old and had three sons and one daughter as well as six grandchildren and two great grandsons.
He currently resides at 2125 Shalimar Dr in Salina KS 67401-6908; previously his addresses included 321 Scott Avenue and 536 Clinton Ln.
Early Life and Education
Luke Phelps first began showing symptoms two weeks before school started and Leslie assumed it was just another summer cold or flu, only for him to keep getting worse and sicker. When his symptoms persisted for more than one week despite treatment and medication being given, Leslie knew something was amiss and set out on an investigative mission to determine what had caused this. But instead he kept getting sicker.
Over the next several months, he underwent surgeries, high-dose chemotherapy treatments and stem cell transplant procedures that nearly proved fatal – yet doctors managed to save his life through both instinct and ingenuity.
Phelps currently attends Ohio University and plans on graduating this spring with both a Bachelor of Arts in French and BSEd in Education degrees. Additionally, he established his namesake foundation to introduce swimming to youth who need it and create an atmosphere in which pools serve as refuges and outlets to help young people discover their strength.
Phelps was known for his persistence throughout a career that started wearing high-tech Speedos and culminated with eight Olympic gold medals; most importantly, however, was the family that supported him throughout it all.
Sharon Phelps has stood by Michael from both his successes and struggles with depression. She has educated their son Boomer on mental health matters while speaking out about her own battles. Sharon co-produced a documentary on anxiety to remove stigma and help identify its signs, while working with the Coeur d’Alene Rotary Club who raised funds to pay for Michael’s appearances at local high schools; additionally she races cars in ARCA Re/Max Series races.
Achievement and Honors
Phelps achieved success at all six of his events in Beijing 2008 Olympic Games to break Mark Spitz’s record of seven gold medals in one Olympic games and set four Olympic records and five world records simultaneously.
No matter who makes an impactful play – be it Michael Jordan’s game-winning jump shot or Joe Montana’s bloodied sock – some moments in sports cannot be replicated; Lucas Phelps’ underwater turn in the medley relay is just such an unmistakable instance.
Luke Nipp, 18, an Interact club member from North Idaho is eagerly awaiting Michael Phelps’ visit for mental health presentations in North Idaho. Luke helped raise money to bring Phelps here for this exciting visit that will benefit students and the local community – plus Phelps will participate in both 200 butterfly swimming as well as potentially swimming 4 x 100 meter medley relay events!
Nicole Johnson has stood by Michael Phelps through all his ups and downs since they met at the 2007 ESPY Awards. Together they now share three children.
Phelps transitioned from RAND to the Cowles Foundation where he studied neoclassical growth theory alongside fellow researchers William Vickrey and Kenneth Arrow. Phelps also attended the Center for Advanced Study in Behavioral Science where discussions with Nobel prize recipients Amartya Sen and John Rawls inspired him to conduct macroeconomics-related research as part of an independent venture.
He began by studying various economic institutions, such as the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and Observatoire Francais des Conjonctures Economiques in Paris. Over time, his research evolved into examinations of dynamical effects and endogenous determination of unemployment.
Phelps has earned millions during his long and distinguished competitive swimming career, becoming one of the richest athletes worldwide thanks to endorsement deals with Under Armor, Subway, Visa and Kellogg.
Phelps has conducted research on numerous subjects, such as the Phillips curve, optimal inflation levels and economic effects of monetary and fiscal policy. His contributions to neoclassical growth theory can be seen through these endeavors.
Phelps and Nicole Johnson share three children: Boomer, Beckett, and Maverick. The family lives in Paradise Valley, Arizona in a home worth $2.5 million with five bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms, and an indoor/outdoor pool.
