Michael Phelps, the most decorated Olympian of all time, has broken numerous records as a competitive swimmer. Making history as the oldest individual gold medalist in Olympic swimming history at the age of 28 is just one of his feats–he has set more than 30 other world records.

#MyYoungerSelf by Child Mind Institute is an anti-stigma campaign. We are grateful to Michael for his willingness to open up about his childhood experience with ADHD.
