The Ryan Lochte Short List

The Ryan Lochte Short List

Six-time Olympic medalist Ryan Lochte may be spending 20 hours a week swimming to train for the 2012 London Olympics, but as he told writer Stephen Rodrick in the August 2012 issue of 'Men's Journal': "I try not to let swimming define who I am." In other words, he has a life, and we were able to find a few examples of that in Rodrick's original interview with the free-spirited champ, who also graces the cover in a stunning shot by photographer Jake Chessum (photo-shoot outtakes of which are featured in this Web-exclusive Ryan Lochte gallery). From other sports to sports cars, Lochte's extracurricular activities definitely keep him out of the pool. Here are six of his favorites. Launch Gallery >>
