Michael Phelps

Going Out in Style

9/3/2012 5:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0903_phelps_launchMost people get a gift certificate and cake when they retire -- Michael Phelps spends the weekend in Las Vegas partying his face off.

The greatest Olympian of all-time hit up Surrender Nightclub and Encore Beach Club to celebrate his retirement from competitive swimming. Joining him for the weekend were a few of his friends, including Olympic gold medalist and training partner Allison Schmitt.

Phelps partied with two famous DJs during the weekend -- Afrojack Friday night at Surrender and David Guetta on Saturday at the pool.

As TMZ first reported, Phelps' Vegas trip began earlier this week when he won $100,000 playing poker.

Every retirement should be this cool.

Okay phelps-please disappear now. Well done on the medals but we're sick of your face. Go get a job as a lifeguard at your local YMCA or something. I'll give you a reference..

Do you think they hang out in the pool or are they so sick of swimming they avoid it like the plague? I'm going with avoiding it.

The "I've never done anything with my life and I know it so I'll trash someone who has" group is out en mass today. If you life sucks that's YOUR fault. You have the power to change it, but it does require getting off your whining butt.

Of course he won $100k. The casino made way more than that from his entourage and fans who wanted to see him. The longer he's there the more money the casino actually makes. So in a way he's an unofficial employee of the casino.

Phelps is the man! But I feel the need to mention that when Usian Bolt said he was the greatest, he was dragged through the dirt, by TMZ, for being delusional since it was only one sport he was good at. Just seems a little hypocritical, that's all. They both clearly rule at what they do.
