The Michael Phelps NFT project is built on Phelps’ historic Sports Illustrated cover story “The Rehabilitation of Michael Phelps,” published on November 16, 2015. The story marked a turnaround moment for Michael Phelps. It saw the sports icon open up about his struggles with mental health for the very first time. The Olympian has since then courageously shared his ongoing challenges with anxiety and depression with the world. All the while advocating for an increase in mental health resources and solutions. This includes his efforts at the Michael Phelps Foundation. This foundation provides thousands of children access to social-emotional learning curriculum.
“Sports Illustrated has had the honor of covering Michael’s career for close to 20 years and we are especially proud to have been the outlet for Michael to first open up about his struggles with mental health exactly 7 years ago,” stated Michael Sherman, VP, Media at Authentic Brands Group (Authentic), owner of the Sports Illustrated brand. “Michael is a true trailblazer both in and out of the pool and we are humbled to again partner with him to amplify mental health awareness through a new lens as part of this NFT collection”.
