Phelps admitted to this on Jimmy Kimmel Show. I don't know why Lochte is getting heat for this. The link is still on the Drudge Report. Also, when do they have time to go to the bathroom with semis and finals within a 20 minute period. You know more people went to the bathroom in the pool during the cheating suit era.

Ozone pools still have chlorine, just less than a regular pool.

If I have to go pee, I just hop out, pretend to be a sprinter (adjust goggles, stretch) and pee in the speedo. So long as I'm hydrated it's not obvious.

Well, at once or twice per day, it's much easier to take care of that before or just wait until after. My body always agrees with me. In four years of college practices, there was only one time I had to get out and use the bathroom.

Get over it, people. It's just pee, which as far as I know, is mainly water and salts and is completely sterile. For the record, I never pee in the pool, but I almost always do when swimming in Lake Washington. Deal with it!

jaadams1
August 4th, 2012, 10:12 PM
Our college coach didn't allow us to get out of the pool for peeing. Why get out in the middle of serious training anyway?

Back in the days of high school state champs at Federal Way, we always thought that was the reason for the deep tank cool down pool behind the blocks. Anxiety causes peeing situations, and you don't have time to run to the locker rooms. :D

With the above comments, I am not going to admit or not admit to anything

I'm not sure why this is a huge deal. They do put chlorine in that pool for a reason (even if it is less than the amount found in regular pools). Considering an Olympic-sized swimming pool contains a little over 660,000 gallons, a bit of pee isn't going to make much of a difference.

I've always hoped the above was true. I kinda swim with my mouth open when I'm relaxed and doing longish swims and occasionally drink pool water. I sure hope the chlorine neutralizes it. I've always felt like these types of matters were better off NOT discussed. It's just one more reason for people to think swimmers are CrAzY!

knelson
August 5th, 2012, 02:28 PM
One or two people peeing in the pool obviously is no big deal, but if you've got a public session with 100 or more people in the pool it's going to seriously degrade the water quality. Just get out of the pool and use the toilet for goodness sake!

If you don't mind drinking other people's urine, you may be one step closer to qualifying for being an astronauts, who drink recycled urine (in space, though). But urine in chlorinated swimming pool produces the carcinogen Trihalomethanes (THMs). You may absorb more of this stuff if you are a "multiple offender".

I might be weird but I would rather not swim around in everyone's piss. Fresh urine from a healthy person is sterile but quickly spoils because it's loaded with microbial nutrients. But that's what chemicals are for, right? Pathogens are dead which is good, but now we're swimming in the chemical waste that remain, or decontamination by-products (DBP).

DBP's are:
[LIST=1]
1- dichloroacetonitrile: known carcinogen
2- Bromodichloromethane: may effect kidneys and liver, by ingestion. Possible carcinogen
3- Chloroform: a useful solvent
4- 1,1,1-trichloropropanone: toxic
5- chloral hydrate: schedule 4 sedative (is this why swimming is addictive?)

I rarely swallow pool water, but in the event that you do, I don't think it's a problem so diluted.

There are also tons of stories of people who survived by drinking their own urine when they were stranded or trapped somewhere.

There are two well known fighters who drink their own urine, on purpose. Boxer Juan Manuel Marquez and UFC former Light Heavyweight Champ, Lyoto Machida.

Then there's Jorge Posada, former catcher with the Yankees, who peed on his own hands regularly to "toughen" them up.

It's magical.

Whatever you might want to say about him, he seems to have some trouble managing his media image. His two biggest stories of the Olympic games seems to have been: (a) his mother being interviewed about his one-night stands (that's just wrong on so many levels) and (b) urinating in the pool. Maybe he picked up new sponsorship from Trojan and Depends?

I guess I misunderstood, when he said "this is my time" I didn't realize he was referring to his need for a nature break. :bolt:

Both interviews were taken completely out of context. The media immediately twisted both his and his mom's words and made him out to be the ladies man with a touch of incontinence.

That said, he's never going to live down the pool pissing even if other Olympians do it but don't care to admit it.

I did the postal 10k last year and it wasn't an issue even though I was in the water for just over 3 hours. And I was drinking 8 oz water every 2k.

I can't imagine swimming 10k continuous in a 25y/m pool (1650/1500 seems like enough), although im tempted to try a 100x100. Unless i was cold, nervous or overhydarted i think id make 3hrs swimming without having to go - you are sweating and using up water for metabolism, and unless you are just cruising you are probably using more water than you are taking in and probably slowing down your kidneys.

I don't go in the pool, but from what ive read and heard, i think many AGers and college swimmers aren't getting out to go during practices.

In open water i think everybody just goes in the water, ive had to pee in my wet suit many times while surfing and more recently swimmming - it warms you up :) or you can let a little water in to move it thru - hose or shower after you get out, so dogs do't think you're a walking hydrant.

A friend growing up with a back yard pool (these weren't very common in the 50s) had a sign that read: "I won't swim in your toilet, if you don't pee in my pool."

So next you’ll tell me their story “U.S. Women's Gymnastics Team Inspires Tiny, Muscular Girls Across the Nation” isn’t real either. Darn, I was inspired by the 2 foot tall girl from Spokane.

“Our little Kendra is 9 years old and only two-feet tall,” said Mindy Matthews of Spokane, Wash. “We assumed she would have to live with us forever because someone so tiny and with such a squeaky voice is unlikely to ever get married or have a career. But now we all have a goal thanks to those ripped sprites of the gymnastics team. Thanks, little ladies!”

totally agree. I won't say I've never done it (swimming around an anchored boat in the middle of a lake with no toilet in sight), but growing up with a backyard pool and others who had them, I was trained early to just go find a bathroom (having flashbacks now "please don't pee in our pool... we don't swim in your toilet"). I mean, seriously, how lazy are we?

So is it also ok to blow nose, spit, or rinse one's long, dirty and smelly hair, in the pool? (I've seen all of them.) Why not, the chlorine will kill it. That's what the chlorine is for!

Last Saturday I found our pool water in such bad quality that the underwater visibility was about 2 feet. The next day it was much better. I had never realized what the Saturday crowd could do to the pool. This was especially since I had just swum in a great, truly crystal-clear pool while on vacation.

A few years ago I was on deck volunteering at a very big and prestigious meet full of college swimmers and a few Olympians. I was a drug escort so needed to be within close proximity to my swimmer until they went to be tested. During the few minutes of waiting time between the race and medal ceremony I heard, "Why are you back in the pool?" "I have to pee!"

On our team there have been numerous discussions about which pool has great gutters to sit in so it does not look like you are going vs the pools with little drains etc... Trust me, they are all going in the pool!
