Set your Lord of the Rings, Arthur and frog meme’s aside. Michael Phelps face is the newest meme taking over the internet. And it’s hilarious.
Phelps was caught on camera prepping for his semifinal race for 200-meter butterfly. We’re sure all athletes have some tradition in how they get ready for a race or a game, but Michael Phelps’ concentration takes the cake.
His “resting Phelps face,” as it has been dubbed by the internet, has gone viral, turning Phelps into a top trending meme.
