It seems a 28-time Olympic medalist even gave Agar a pep speak on a phone.
“I had an overwhelming discuss with @MichaelPhelps only a small while ago! He gave me a pep speak for my arriving Florida 1/2 @IRONMAN,” Agar wrote on Twitter.
Agar, who lives in Rockford, Michigan, grew adult wanting to play veteran sports.
His father, Jeff, was a Detroit Tigers awaiting in a 1980s, and Agar has always felt drawn to athletics. Five years ago, a father-son twin began using together. They’ve given finished half marathons, marathons and triathlons.
And now, Agar will try a IRONMAN 70.3.
