Phelps said he has done just that. When he's home in Arizona, which hasn't been often lately, he visits Bowman at the Arizona State pool two or three times a week. For the first time since he was in grade school, he's able to enjoy a casual swim. He and his longtime friend and training partner, Allison Schmitt, recently drove over for a workout, and Phelps joked that his heart filled with dread when Bowman ambled up to watch. Sure enough, Bowman began calling out their times.
