Mark Spitz feels snubbed by lack of Olympic invite

Mark Spitz is sitting around pondering whether Michael Phelps is going to break his record for gold medals in one Olympics and feeling a bit left out of things apparently:

“I never got invited. You don’t go to the Olympics just to say, I am going to go. Especially because of who I am,” Spitz told AFP in Hong Kong.

“I am going to sit there and watch Michael Phelps break my record anonymously? That’s almost demeaning to me. It is not almost—it is.”

Actually I think if he went on his own it would show more about his character and sportsmanship than just sitting around watching it on TV, but maybe I’m wrong.
