Michael Phelps heads to London with visions of gold dancing in his head, making him one of the most sought-after bachelors in the world. 

There isn't a terrible amount known of Phelps and his dating life. The most current piece of information we have on his status comes from earlier this year, when the swimming star parted with his long-time girlfriend. 

The swimmer who will be hoping to improve on his 16 Olympic medals shortly once dated Miss California 2010, Nicole Johnson. 

The New York Post broke the bad news back in January that the two went their separate ways, after Johnson apparently moved to Baltimore just to be closer to her then boyfriend. 

This comes after three years of dating and rumors that Phelps had at points become cozy with other women, most famously with reality TV starlet Brittny Gastineau. 

A source close to the two at that time scoffed that Phelps had ever been unfaithful. 

Nicole would not have made a move to Baltimore had she not thought they were in a position where they were looking toward the future. 

The Baltimore area just wasn't the right fit for Johnson who has aspirations in the entertainment industry. The executive director for Miss California USA, Keith Lewis, claims this was the impetus of her move a few months back. 

You can follow the former girlfriend of Michael Phelps on Twitter. There she claims to being a host, consultant, model and Mogl success manager. 

Nothing lasts forever, even for a world-class athlete.
