    Re: Lochte!

    Is Lochte retiring from swim competition? I've always noticed when athletes start doing hokey things like this they seem to lose their competitive edge or maybe drive. I hate to see him retire so young but perhaps he's making really great $$$$$money$$$$ doing this degrading show. I guess we'll find out eventually.

    He has always been a free spirit!! The show is making him $$$$ for being himself. Too much is made of the real lives of others outside their sport/film/lifestyle ---imho

    He’s older than the recently retired Michael Phelps. And according to all reports he is aiming for Rio in 2016
    The opinions expressed in the above post are mine and not those of U.S. Masters Swimming.

    In the article he says he's pointing to 2016.

    Sorry, my bad. I thought he was a mere young lad but I guess not.
    Good luck to Lochte on his reality tv/swimming career!

    He's not a free spirit, he's an embarrassment.

    Here is a good video of Ryan demonstrating stroke drills. It looks like it was filmed at a clinic for kids. Their reaction when he does "really fast backstroke arms" is great.
