Michael Phelps APE Index

Michael Phelps APE Index

Using the APE Index calculation Michael Phelps APE Index is 1.052

According to Scientific American and Scienceabc lists, Michael Phelps’s wingspan is 6 feet 66 inches (203 cm), and his height is 6 feet 4 inches (193 cm).

80 inches (203 cm) divided by 76 inches (193 cm) gives Michael Phelps APE Index as 1.052, which is way ABOVE average even among elite Athletes.

In comparison, if we take another world-class swimmer Caeleb Dressel 6 ft 3 in (191 cm), who is almost the same height as Michael Phelps but has a wingspan of 6 ft 4 in (193.04 cm), which gives makes his APE Index be 1.010.

Michael Phelps has a very high APE Index which, along with his hard work in training, no doubt has helped him win a record 23 Olympic GOLD medals.
