Phelps not even sure what events he is in at trials

When asked how many events he will compete in at the U.S. Olympic trials, Michael Phelps had no idea.

He is leaving it up to his coach Bob Bowman “to figure it all out”.

Phelps will swim in nine events over eight days and is hoping to qualify for at least five indvidual events. Combined with three relays he will be able to at least challenge Mark Spitz’s record of seven gold medals.

There are a total of 52 spots on the Beijing Olympic swimming team up for grabs.

Some other contenders include 19 year old Katie Hoff who is entered in seven events.

Godaddy girl and Playboy model Amanda Beard will also be competing for a spot on the Olympic team.
