Phelps Might Blow Off 2012 After Bonggate

2/5/2009 2:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

phelps9-1Michael Phelps is thinking twice about competing in the 2012 Olympics because the media scrutiny is drowning him.

The golden boy tells the Baltimore Sun he "clearly made a mistake" inhaling from a bong in that now-infamous shot, and he might even reconsider swimming in London. "This is a decision of mine that I'm not going to make today," he says. "But it is something I need to think about."

Meanwhile, Phelps says the paps have been all over him, even waking him up at 7:00 AM at his bedroom window. Watch TMZ Sports on FS1 Get the new TMZ Sports app!
