London 2012: Michael is going to enjoy himself after Olympics, says mum Debbie Phelps

London 2012: Michael is going to enjoy himself after Olympics, says mum Debbie PhelpsWashington: Michael Phelps’ mum Debbie has said that her son is going to enjoy for some more years before he settles down.

The swimming star’s mum made the revelation when she was asked if Phelps, who is now the most decorated Olympian in history with 21 total medals, was ready to settle down with a nice young lady once his last Olympics are over.

“There’s only one person who knows that, and that’s the man upstairs,” Us Magazine quoted her as saying at a Subway in London.

“I think he’s going to enjoy himself these next couple of years and just unwind,” she said.

While 27-year-old Phelps admitted in London that he’s looking forward to trying out snowboarding and skiing, his mother predicts fans will see him in . . . soccer cleats?

“I think he’ll get on the international soccer circuit,” Debbi said. “He loves the big world stage.”

“Michael set his goals and I never knew what they were. It was always between him and his coach, but I knew the goals were being set and they were obtainable. He really worked so hard to obtain what he set out to do,” she said.

But the poignancy of the London Games -- his very last Olympics -- isn’t lost on his proud mom.

“I’m appreciating the swims that he does, because they’re his last ones . . . There is not an ‘again’,” she added.
