As one of the favorites at the London Olympics and someone who could potentially upstage Michael Phelps, it would stand to reason that Ryan Lochte needs to do everything he can to remain focused. For some people, remaining focused means keeping loose and having a good time. During a training session on Monday where the Americans shared the pool with the Australians, Lochte was reportedly doing just that with Australian swimmer Blair Evans.
According to the Brisbane Times, Lochte and Evans were seen chatting it up for a while between practice swims. Their actions were described as “flirty,” and after they showered and changed the two swimmers were even seen leaving the pool together.
