You might have heard that Olympians where not allowed to have personal sponsors during the 2012 London Olympics. Now that the games are over, Louis Vuitton has now rolled out a brand new ad featuring Michael Phelps. Captured by the iconic photographer Annie Leibovitz, Phelps is seen (above) in a bath tub with a Louis Vuitton travel tote laying on the floor. The 27 year old, which is now the most successful Olympian in history is only wearing a speedo and a pair of swimming goggles.  

The other ad below is of Phelps sitting with the Soviet gymnast Larisa Latynina who received 18 Olympic medals and kept the record of most decorated athlete at the Olympic Games for 48 years. Phelps surpassed this record after winning the 4 x 200 freestyle Olympic Relay in the 2012 London Olympic Games.
