Ryan Lochte admits peeing in Olympic pool

Ryan Lochte is one of the best swimmers in the world, has six-pack abs, and a healthy bank account, but he still has at least one similarity to most people. The 11-time Olympic medalist admits he pees in the pool.

Lochte was asked whether Olympians pee in the pool during an interview with Ryan Seacrest.

“Of course,” he said. “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.”

The horror! At least a blue ring doesn’t form around the Olympians when they pee in the pool like what happens at water parks (unless “Grown Ups” was lying). But I guess this admission from Lochte means Olympic swimmers have a tighter bond than we all realized, and we already knew they were pretty close.

Below is audio of Lochte’s interview. He talks about his plans to move to Los Angeles after the Games so he can embark on becoming a fashion designer.

    From the time I learned to swim at 2 years old until the last time I was in a pool…last week…I automatically expect that it’s been peed in…because unless it’s freshly-filled, it has pee in it. It’s not a big deal, it’s pee. If it was poop, I’d be worried, but urine is pretty harmless unless the person peeing has an infection in his/her naughty bits in which case they shouldn’t be in the pool anyway.

    There are far nastier things in people’s pants than pee.
