Olympic gold medal winner Ryan Lochte has (naturally) been getting lots of recent attention. And not all of it is good; first he almost lost his medal for wearing grillz at the award ceremony, and then his mom mentioned something about him having lots of one night stands in an interview! Lochte’s talent and good looks can only go so far, and now he’s revealed some rather crass information about his swimming habits! I wonder if he’s going to lose any fans over this info…
I’m sure plenty of people pee in the pool. (I don’t, I promise.) It’s just a fact that everyone conveniently ignores when going for a dip, but no one over the age of five usually admits to taking a tinkle in the water. But Lochte did! This morning Ryan Seacrest asked him if the swimmers pee in the pool. His response? “Of course. I think there’s just something about getting into chlorine water that you just automatically go. [I didn't] during the races, but I sure did in warm-up.”
I think my biggest fear about peeing in an Olympic swimming pool would be that the cameras would catch it! Could you even imagine if the whole world caught you dirtying up the water? I wonder if Ryan’s fellow athletes will be swimming near him anytime soon. [via Buzzfeed]
What do you think of Lochte’s admission?
