New Delhi, August 27 : Golden Olympian Michael Phelps has apparently made a special place in U.S. President George W. Bush's daughter Barbara's heart, for she reportedly kept on telling her friends that the swimmer could be spectacular during the Beijing Games.
"Barbara, 26, often talked about Phelps, 23, with her friends even before the Beijing Olympic Games," chinaview.cn quoted the Globe Magazine as saying in a report.
The journal said that Barbara's words suggested that she admired Phelps' swimming skills, and considered him to be a charming and handsome athlete.
The report also said that the U.S. President might like to play Cupid, for it was he who introduced Barbara to Phelps after he won his unprecedented eight-gold quest in men's 400 individual medley final on August 10.
Bush is said to have invited Phelps to be a special guest in White House next month.
He is also said to have mentioned that he would let Barbara accompany Phelps during the stay.
