Ryan Lochte: I Peed In London Olympic Swimming Pool

(CBS Tampa) — Michael Phelps better watch where he swims next time.

Gold medal winner Ryan Lochte admits to urinating in the Olympic swimming pool during the London games.

Talking to Ryan Seacrest, Lochte – former University of Florida swimmer — says that athletes usually pee in the pool.

Lochte claims he never peed during an actual race, “but I sure did in warm-up.”

“I think there’s just something about getting into chlorine water that you just automatically go,” Lochte said on Seacrest’s radio show.

Lochte has been no stranger to media attention during these Olympic games. His mom, Ike Lochte, told NBC News Thursday that her son is into “one-night stands.” Lochte was also warned by Olympic officials not to wear his $25,000 jewel-encrusted grill onto the podium stand during the medal ceremony.
