UPDATE: Michael has been suspended for 3 months by USA Swimming. He’s also lost his Kellogg sponsorship.

Although he was previously scheduled to celebrate with the Super Bowl attendees in Tampa, spent this weekend addressing a celebration from last fall. (Note to future Olympic superstars: There’s no such thing as a “private” party with college students.)
