It didn’t take long for the conspiracy theorists to set up shop. A web site has been created to “prove” that Michael Phelps didn’t really win his 7th gold medal at the Olympics.
The next picture in the series, however, shows a bit more — Sports Illustrated has the photos.
Phelps’ fingers appear to be bent back, as if bent back by the wall. The swimmer on the right? Not so much.
About the blogger
Bob Collins retired from Minnesota Public Radio in 2019 after 12 years of writing NewsCut and pointing out to complainants that posts weren’t news stories. A son of Massachusetts, he was a news editor 1992-1998, created the MPR News regional website in 1999, invented the popular Select A Candidate, started several blogs, and every day lamented that his Minnesota Fantasy Legislature project never caught on.
