Ryan Lochte, swimming freakazoid and 11-time Olympic medalist, this week begins the second phase of his quest to Rio, where, at the relatively seasoned age of 31, he will compete against waves of twentysomethings as they look to lock up spots on the U. Are we going to bring back the "jeah, jeah, jeah" and all that? What is it like to go through this process now as a known quantity, as opposed to four years ago when you were young hot shot? I guess people said I was a good looking guy, but I think they over-exaggerated the silly part. I'm always going to walk around with a smile, and I'm going to be happy. But other than that, during the Olympics we're so structured about what to wear so we look like a team.
(On Sunday he finished third in the 400-meter individual medley, and thus won't be able to defend the gold he won in London.) A few weeks ago, I sat down with Lochte to talk about training, dating, what it's like to no longer be the new kid on the block, and that one somewhat questionable catchphrase... Now that I'm more mature, it's time to focus more on the swimming part and less on the outside part. But now you feel like you're getting back to where you thought they'd be? During the day, unless it's my buddies wanting to go out to lunch or something, I mean I'll do that, but otherwise I just want to rest before my afternoon practice.] It's just more and more people know who I am, and more and more people are more eager to come up to me and take a picture. I would say it was an exaggerated version of myself. So I might definitely have to get a new pair of grills.

“Swimming has helped me avoid many of these pitfalls and find confidence in my abilities, not in what my body happens to look like.
film is as good-looking a crew we’ve seen on the silver screen in a while—and the movie's trailer only proves that point.
Sure, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is muscular and humongous.
I mean, I guess the only thing that's different right now than four years ago, is that in people's eyes I have more of a target on my back. I feel like the underdog again, because my past three or four years, my swimming hasn't been up to par. What about that transition set you back do you think? I had been with my coach back in Florida for twelve years. And took that as, "Oh, he's dumb blah, blah, blah." And I think that was the perception that got over-exaggerated a lot. Last time around you were rocking some grills, are you bringing them back? But outside of that you might see some fashionable clothing I might be wearing.
