Michael Phelps to return from suspension at meet in Arizona

MESA, Ariz. (AP) - Michael Phelps will return to competition from a six-month suspension at a swimming meet in Mesa, Arizona, next week.

The 18-time Olympic gold medalist will compete in the Arena Pro Swim Series that runs April 15-18 at Skyline Aquatic Center.

The Mesa meet was the first one Phelps swam in after coming out of retirement last year.

Phelps' suspension, handed down by USA Swimming in the wake of his second drunken driving arrest, ended April 6. He entered a six-week inpatient rehabilitation program a day after the suspension was announced in October.
