DJ Michael Phelps?  Earlier this year the Olympian was spotted in Las Vegas behind the decks scoring DJ tips from David Guetta and Afrojack  at the Wynn Las Vegas following his Olympic retirement. Coincidently, these are the same two DJ’s responsible for mentoring Paris Hilton in their craft allowing her a quick rise and even quicker fall in the electronic music world. Last week, Phelps was seen back in Sin City, only this time at XS nightclub behind the decks with Producer, DJ, and professional crowd surfer Steve Aoki. Phelps was taught firsthand by Aoki the moves that garnered his reputation as the DJ with the best stage presence in the electronic music scene. Why be the most highly decorated Olympic athlete of all time when you can be something kids today respect, a DJ.
