Olympics2016 SPORTS NEWS: PHELPS and USAIN BOLT to be replaced

Looking through the line-up, it's hard to pick out one individual on the cusp of the kind of world fame enjoyed by PHELPS, and especially USAIN BOLT, who was quick to flash his Hollywood smile and thunderbolt stance after winning each of his six golds. Bolt earned an estimated $30 million last year from endorsement deals alone, and Phelps' annual endorsement haul is an estimated $10 million. An informal poll of journalists covering the Games did not yield any obvious candidates, but then, both the Jamaican and the American failed to grab many headlines (by their standards) at their first Olympics. At the Sydney 2000 Games, 15-year-old Phelps was the youngest US Olympic swimmer for almost 70 years -- but finished outside the medals in his one event, the 200m butterfly. In 2004, 17-year-old Bolt went out in the first round of his only event, the 200m.
With that in mind, a future Phelps or Bolt might make only a small impression this time around? After earning both a 28 sum total Olympics medal all rounder!
