Swimming The Shark: The Lo-Down – 6/16

Hour 1

A wall dedicated to the memory of US rapper Tupac Shakur is seen on May 26, 2016 in  Los Angeles, California.  Twenty years after his death, Tupac still reigns. Other rappers have succeeded him in stardom, and promotional efforts around Tupac have been haphazard, but the artist who died at age 25 on September 13, 1996, in Las Vegas, maintains a hold that is among the most enduring in recent times.  / AFP / VALERIE MACON / TO GO WITH AFP STORY by Shaun TANDON, "20 years on, Tupac reigns as potent global force"

USA Swimming suspended Olympic superstar Michael Phelps for three months on February 5, 2009, a "reprimand" after a published photograph showed him apparently smoking marijuana. The national governing body of the sport stressed that the punishment was not for a doping violation, but said they wanted to send a "s trong message" to Phelps about his status as a role model for young people.
