Easily one of the most highly anticipated events of the Rio Olympics, Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte went head to head in the men's 200-meter individual medley Thursday. But, while most people were on the edge of their seats for the event, there was at least one person who couldn't have cared less: Phelps's 3-month-old son, Boomer.

While his dad was busy winning his 22nd gold medal, Boomer Phelps was sleeping through the whole thing. In fact, after he woke up due to all the commotion, he started crying because he just wanted to go back to sleep.

I guess when your dad is Michael Phelps, winning an Olympic race just isn't that big of a deal anymore. Sleep on, Boomer!
