The L.A. Times is suggesting that Ryan Lochte may be swimming's new "bad boy!" - What a shame too because in the real world friends I know that have met him, interviewed him, have work with him have told me what a kind man he is and what a big heart he has.
Ryan Lochte might be edging toward the role of swimming's bad boy. Lochte proclaimed these Olympics "my time" for months in advance, then won two gold medals in six events. He swam his last event on Thursday night and promptly embarked on a media blitz, including appearances on NBC, CNN, CNBC, MSNBC, Eurosport, E! and Access Hollywood.They mention that he will be moving to L.A. too. I think it will be a nice career fit for him.
He also did a radio interview with Ryan Seacrest, in which he confessed that he urinated in the warm-up pool at the Olympics. TMZ picked up the story and blasted it across the Web within an hour.
