Ravens To Air Michael Phelps' Race During Preseason Opener At M&T Bank Stadium


Fans inside M&T Bank Stadium for the preseason opener Thursday night will also get to cheer on another Baltimore sports star.


The Ravens will air Michael Phelps' 200-meter individual medley finals race on the RavensVision video boards during a commercial break of the matchup against the Carolina Panthers. The race is scheduled for 10 p.m., and Phelps will be going after his 22nd career gold medal.

Fans at the game will also get signs to show their support for Phelps (pictured to the right).

Phelps has already won gold medals this year in the 200-meter butterfly and a pair of relays.

Phelps, the most decorated Olympian of all time, is a Baltimore native and life-long Ravens fan. He has regularly attended Ravens games over the years, and has been honored on the field after his previous trips to the Olympics.

The Ravens also aired one of Phelps' gold-medal races during the 2008 Olympics in the stadium immediately after a preseason contest.

Eight years ago, fans at M&T Bank Stadium watched Michael Phelps' gold medal race on the RavensVision video boards. That magical night will be recreated during the Ravens' 2016 preseason opener Thursday.
