Phelps makes Almanac

Phelps makes Almanac (The World Almanac / December 17, 2012)

Yet another laurel for Michael Phelps' swim cap: The Olympian will grace the cover of the 2013 World Almanac.

Phelps will be in good company, the Almanac folks announced Monday. Joining him in the prime spot are Barack Obama, Mitt Romney and, for some reason, Anne Hathaway. Phelps, however, bests them all for the sweetest center position.

The Almanac chronicles the most important happenings of 2012. Phelps, right up there with the presidential election and such, was at the top of the list.
