TMZ - Swimming champ Ryan Lochte PEED IN THE POOL AT THE OLYMPICS — seriously … he just admitted to it on live radio. Ryan was on the phone with Ryan Seacrest this morning, when Ryan asked if swimmers ever pee in the pool — Ryan replied, “Of course. We always do.” When asked if he ever peed during one of the races in London, Ryan said, “Not during the races, but I sure did before in warm-up.” According to Lochte, “There’s something about getting into chlorine water that you just automatically go.”
Listen I hate the guy. Hate his guts. Seeing him flop this Olympics brought a smile to my face. But I ain’t gonna knock this guy for pissing in the pool. As a matter of fact I feel like this is almost like a little olive branch. Like me and him share some kind of bond over pool pissing. Bottom line is if you tell people you don’t pee in the pool, you are a liar. Lochte’s right. You get in that water and you just gotta automatically go. And if you think I’m gonna take the time to get out of the pool so that my soaking wet bathing suit sticks to my legs, and then go into a bathroom barefoot to take a piss, well then you don’t know me at all. I’m in a 10,000 gallon pool and you want me to bend over backwards to avoid mixing in a few ounces of pee? Go fuck yourself.
And I love people who act like its so gross that other people are in water that has a few drops of your piss. Hey guess what my ball sweat and grundle grease are all up in that pool too. Whether I piss or not sharing a pool with people is probably pretty gross no matter what.
PS – I know its been proven to basically be an urban legend and a deterrent but every time I pee in a pool I let a little bit out, check for a purple cloud around me, and then when I know the coast is clear I finish up.
