He's not getting younger...

Perhaps he wants to leave while he's still at the top rather than wait till he's past being effective.
He's been constantly working out and training for 12 years I imagine it's pretty exaughting! :) He reached his peek and made his mark, it's time for him to move on.
becoz he can let others get the gold
He is old.
Because he achieved everything he wanted to do. I luv him!!!!
be cuz he trained for 12 years and didnt get gold for doing jack
Michael Phelps is putting an end to his career, because he's getting older and more tired, and he already got his world record.
whatever is said tht last year he was gonna end his career, but im sure tht when the 2016 olympics come around he'll b there, so ya i dont think he will end he's career
hes 27 and maybe one more year would be good. but he's getting old and maybe he doesn't want to have so many medals or something.
