World visit Aug. 31, 2004.

USA Swimming gold medalist teammates Ian Crocker (front left),
Michael Phelps (front right) and Lenny Krayzelburg made Walt Disney
World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., the first destination
following their championship performances in Athens. The
championship trio was at Disney World Aug. 31 to kick off a
national tour called “Disney’s Swim with the Stars.” Disneyland
Resort in California and Walt Disney World Resort in Florida will
present the tour that will feature community outreach programs in
each city and a swimming celebration show. Phelps, Crocker and
Krayzelburg will be joined by Mickey Mouse in each tour stop.
Following today’s Orlando-area visit, the tour will travel with
scheduled stops in Atlanta, New York, Baltimore, Chicago, Dallas,
Denver, Las Vegas, Salt Lake City, Seattle and San Francisco. The
final stop will be Oct. 4-5 at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim,
Calif. Here, they take a wild plunge on the thrill water ride
Splash Mountain in the Magic Kingdom, along with Irena Papelova, a
friend of Krayzelburg’s. (Gene Duncan, Photographer)
