BALTIMORE - Returning to the Baltimore pool where he honed his swimming skills, Michael Phelps accepted a $250,000 donation Thursday from Kellogg's for his charitable foundation.

Phelps was home after a whirlwind journey that began with his record-setting performance winning eight gold medals in the Beijing Olympics.

Kellogg Co. will feature Phelps' photo on Frosted Flakes, Corn Flakes, Club Crackers and Rice Krispies treats.

The Michael Phelps Foundation promotes water safety and youth swimming. It got started with a $1 million bonus Phelps earned from another sponsor, Speedo, for his gold-medal haul.

Phelps is negotiating to buy Meadowbrook Aquatic Center.
