At SkipIt, we appreciate skipping lots of things, not just skipping video ads. And guess what? So do our world’s top athletes now and again. In fact, 14-time gold medal Olympian, Michael Phelps, recently announced that he will SKIP swimming in one of his signature events, the 200 meter men’s freestyle, at the London Olympics so he can focus more of his energy on relays for the USA swim team. While Michael was on track to win the event again this year (he won at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and the trials this year), his coach, Bob Bowman, has said that “there would be no regrets about skipping out on the chance for an encore.”
So there you have it, fellow skippers! Even the world’s best athletes skip things in life! Now go ahead and start skipping video ads so you can watch Michael take the gold in his other 7 events.
