A case of mistaken identity – Parry as Phelps
This is funny.
Carrying a cutout of Olympic star Michael Phelps, BBC’s Steve Parry was mobbed by Chinese “Phelps fans” in Tiananmen Square. They actually have a bit of a similarity which is probably why the Chinese got confused. 🙂
To have the “swimming” connection, Parry actually swam the 200m butterfly alongside Phelps during the Athens Olympics. Parry won bronze, while Phelps took the gold.
