16 Michael Phelps #PhelpsFace memes worthy of a gold medal

Right before their 200-meter butterfly semifinal, Michael Phelps and his rival, South African swimmer Chad le Clos, were spotted in the same room together. When le Clos started shadowboxing (which was, admittedly, awkward to watch), that was when it all went down.

Some like to believe Phelps wasn’t actually staring down le Clos and mad-dogging the guy, but the commentators sure made a point to talk about what looked like a scowl on Phelps’ face — and they would. Not. Stop.

Sure enough, his face would go viral almost immediately with the hashtag #PhelpsFace. Thank you, internet.
