10 tips for dating ryan lochte
In August, Lochte was spotted partying it up and downing drinks in Las Vegas at the Hakkasan Nightclub — to the tune of ,500.Sources told The Post that he and 10 others purchased bottles of Grey Goose vodka, Avion tequila and Veuve Clicquot Champagne over the span of three-and-a-half hours.Ryan Lochte, swimming freakazoid and 11-time Olympic medalist, this week begins the second phase of his quest to Rio, where, at the relatively seasoned age of 31, he will compete against waves of twentysomethings as they look to lock up spots on the U. Are we going to bring back the "jeah, jeah, jeah" and all that? What is it like to go through this process now as a known quantity, as opposed to four years ago when you were young hot shot? I guess people said I was a good looking guy, but I think they over-exaggerated the silly part. I'm always going to walk around with a smile, and I'm going to be happy. But other than that, during the Olympics we're so structured about what to wear so we look like a team. (On Sunday he finished third in the 400-meter individual medley, and thus won't be able to defend the gold he won in London.) A few weeks ago, I sat down with Lochte to talk about training, dating, what it's like to no longer be the new kid on the block, and that one somewhat questionable catchphrase... Now that I'm more mature, it's time to focus more on the swimming part and less on the outside part. But now you feel like you're getting back to where you thought they'd be? During the day, unless it's my buddies wanting to go out to lunch or something, I mean I'll do that, but otherwise I just want to rest before my afternoon practice.] It's just more and more people know who I am, and more and more people are more eager to come up to me and take a picture. I would say it was an exaggerated version of myself. So I might definitely have to get a new pair of grills. And then after that you go back home and have about four or five hours before your next practice. I heard going back to the Sochi Olympics the athletes were using Tinder in the Village and everything, so I started using that. I was going to ask you about Olympic Village stories. Just because you just have so many people from so many different countries. So once you sign this code of conduct you have to be in your bed by a certain time. Go to the swimming pool where we do like forty five minutes, we call it "activation," but it's like abs, sit ups, just stuff to get your heart going. And then after that we do an hour, an hour-and-a-half of weight lifting. So squats, bench, hang cleans, snatches, stuff like that. I mean, honestly if you're an outsider looking in it seems like one big party. And you have people who finish their competition early, so then they just hang out in the village, up at late hours, banging on their drums, yelling, chanting their national anthems. No, one good thing about USA is that we have this code of conduct. It was basically, Ryan was starting his swimming career over again. Do you do anything for fun during this period or is it just all training all the time? What was that like and did you feel like your public persona was an accurate version of yourself?
The 32-year-old athlete was charged by Brazilian authorities with falsely reporting a crime.
I mean, I guess the only thing that's different right now than four years ago, is that in people's eyes I have more of a target on my back. I feel like the underdog again, because my past three or four years, my swimming hasn't been up to par. What about that transition set you back do you think? I had been with my coach back in Florida for twelve years. And took that as, "Oh, he's dumb blah, blah, blah." And I think that was the perception that got over-exaggerated a lot. Last time around you were rocking some grills, are you bringing them back? But outside of that you might see some fashionable clothing I might be wearing.
Just because of everything I've done in the sport of swimming. Whether it was changing coaches, or changing weight coaches, or because I moved from Florida to North Carolina, I don't know, but everything in that transition set me back... Swimmers famously go hairless, what's that process like?
And you think by doing it after so many years, it gets easier, but I always end up cutting myself. And it's so much smoother than regular shaving, because I don't have to worry about it growing back.
Because during the Olympics it's like a seven-day meet.
