LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) — The mother of one of the greatest Olympians of all time was in Louisville Tuesday and she had quite a story to tell about her life.
Deborah Phelps, the proud mom of Michael – you know, the swimmer with 18 gold medals – was at the Marriott in Downtown Louisville where she talked to a crowd about being a single mom raising three children while working as a teacher and eventually a principal. She had a powerful message of teamwork and education.
