So Michael Phelps has just done an amazing thing by breaking a record and winning 8 Gold Medals. Yes, Michael Phelps has ADHD! Do you really think it’s just because he has Attention Deficit Disorder that he is at a loss for words? He’s in shock and is still trying to process what he’s just done! I would even expect the world’s best speaker to be at a loss for words after something like this.
I guess I’m just a little annoyed at all the people who are already commenting about his lack of speaking ability. People are blaming it on his ADHD, wondering if he’s autistic, or blaming it on some other disorder. Yes, his ADHD has something to do with him being so overwhelmed!
But come on people!! Give Michael Phelps a break! How well could you speak if you had just accomplished what he’s done?
