The greatest Olympian of all time, Michael Phelps, is in danger of losing his medals from the 2012 London Olympics. Why? Well because of this below picture.
See athletes are NOT allowed to endorse any product that is one from the Olympic sponsors from July 18 to Aug. 15. See Louis Vuitton was not an Olympic sponsor so the ad should not have been seen by the public until after the games wrapped up on.It violates an Olympic rule. The rule states
"a competitor or a team may lose the benefit of any ranking obtained in relation to other events at the Olympic Games at which he or it was disqualified or excluded; in such case the medals and diplomas won by him or it shall be returned to the IOC"
SO the punishment may result in Phelps losing this medals. But the catch is that the photo was set to be released August 18, 2012, but somehow the picture was leaked early. Both Phelps and the photographer, Annie Leibovitz, have denied leaking the photo.
Good luck Michael!!
