Sounds ridiculous... How's Mark Spitz doing these days?

I figure he'll do some motivational type things and do well, maybe make a few million, but a billion?

That's Tiger Woods money, and he's going to keep going for YEARS.

You'll see him on the Wheaties  box, they'll try to push him in hollywood... He'll make a few bucks and could, if he invests properly and is smart about it, live quite comfortably for the rest of his life.

A billion dollars though? There has never been an athlete to make that much money ever and he will not be the first.

Well this is over 8 years, so if he competes again in 4 years in the next summer olympics and wins another 5 or 6.  Then i could see it being possible..  Basically makin $125,000,000 a year in endorsements.

how can he make that much in endorsements, first of all theres nothing to promote in swimming, whats he going to have the Phelps headcap? the Phelps swimming suit? also swimming is nowhere near as popular as major sports, after the olympics end this week the Phelps hype/popularity will drop off immediately. 

he could make some good money off the wave hes riding right now but nowhere near these ridiculous numbers.

He'll make about $50 million next year, but then the star will begin to fade. 

In the next 8 years, he can expect to earn $250-300 million.  That's great money, but not a billion.

I still couldn't pick him out of a lineup.

Yeah i heard that too, but those figures are inflated, and his not a athlete, Tiger will be the first billionaire athlete.

Magic does have the cure hahahaha. Good for him, if i had aids and his money i would have the cure too.

My understanding is that Starbucks does not franchise.



Carl Lewis is the greatest Olympian and he isn't raking in that kind of dough.
