Michael Phelps says he is going to have to live with the fallout from a photo of him smoking from a marijuana pipe, the Olympic champion told The Baltimore Sun on Wednesday.Phelps said he is embarrassed and he "clearly made a mistake." "It's obviously bad judgment and it's something I'm not proud of at all," Phelps told The Sun. "I will say that with the mistakes that I've made in my life, I've learned from them. Every one of them. And I've become a better person. That's what I plan to do from here. It's definitely not what I wanted, and it's clearly not what my mom wanted."
