Swimmer Michael Phelps has made it known that the London Olympics will be his last time swimming competitively and after becoming the most-decorated Olympian in history, who can blame him? Now that swimming is over, he can turn his attention to other subjects, such as the dating game.
Phelps, 27, has been quiet about his love life, but he finally appeared with his mystery girlfriend, who has now been revealed to be model Megan Rossee, 25, at a post-Olympics celebration.
According to Hollyscoop, the couple have been dating since January and “things started to heat up just prior to the Olympics,” a source told the site. “At the time when they began dating, baseball and television star Doug Reinhardt was crushing on her too, but she chose to be with Michael instead.”
The 22-time Olympic medalist also fell for Rossee. “Michael knew that he had to leave for the Olympics and not wanting to give up on their relationship, he flew Megan out to the trials in Omaha and then to London for The Games,” the source told Hollyscoop.
She has also shared Instagram photos of the two together with Phelps’ newly acquired medals.
Phelps and Rossee appeared together for the first time publicly at the Speedo Athlete Celebration in London.
Phelps won four gold and two silver medals at the London Games.
