Olympians ship in for pool season

Considering most of the Vegas party pools are only waist-deep, they may have engaged in a bit of overkill this weekend.

Amanda Beard took a break from training April 16 to spend the day with her sisters at the Palazzo’s Azure Pool. Yet she’s just a mere two-time Olympic gold medalist with a total of seven medals. Michael Phelps, the 16-time Olympic medal-winner with six golds, held court next door at Encore Beach Club.

Phelps, now sporting a goatee, partied in the pool with the day-club crowd. He jumped into the DJ booth, too, to address a crowd full of people decked out in their own faux medals handed out for the event. They weren’t issued complimentary faux bongs, however.
