Olympian Michael Phelps Shares What He Listens to Before a Race

What do you listen to when you're the world's most decorated Olympian Michael Phelps competing in your 5th Summer Games?

The classics, baby.

In a recent interview with MSN 120 Sports, Michael Phelps shared what tunes he listens to get in the zones before a race. Like the rest of us, Phelps is a Skrillex fan.

The music that I've been listening to this time around...I've got some old school hits. I've been going out to some old-school Eminem when I get to the pool, and then I change it up to... Nero and Skrillex "Promises"...EDM. Got some old-school [Steve] Aoki in the mix from 2008..."

Phelps went on to say that he's also been listening to old Lil Wayne and Young Jeezy to get him focused before the race.
