MICHAEL PHELPS and other Olympic American Swimmers are “cupping”. It’s an “ancient” Chinese method of drawing blood away from muscles to help muscles heal. I think it’s nonsense, but what do I know, I haven’t won Gold Medals.
What am I certain of? That crazy moms across America are checking Amazon, looking for “cupping” kits so they can start cupping their future Olympians (and their ticket to fame). Oh, its gonna happen – likely already is happening. There is no shortage of nutty helicopter parents out there who will do anything to get their kid on a national stage, and the camera on them in the stands.
