Scary stare known as ‘Phelps Face’
Phelps Face was born from a powerful image of Michael Phelps during the 2016 Summer Olympics. Just before he was about to compete in a race, a photo was taken where he appeared extremely focused and had an intimidating look on his face.
Phelps was getting ready for the 200-meter butterfly semifinal. He had his hoodie on and was listening to “Stick Talk” by Future. This added to the intensity of his pre-race preparation.
Interestingly, his fierce look seemed to be directed towards Chad le Clos, a fellow swimmer from South Africa and a competitor in the race. This image became widely popular on the internet and was shared as a meme by many.
