Ryan I wish you the best for the next future years! and what you did is the best motivation for promoting swimming. I am a ex seal of the sea but still doing my trainnig as a kid and I have my little dolfing that needs motivation also. Sincerely Ale.
This past weekend Ryan Lochte swam at the Senior Champs in Orlando, I was stunned how generous he was with his time, plenty of pictures for everyone and gave everyone a taste of London 2012. Ryan Lochte is a True Champion and an Inspiration to the young swimmers. Thanks Ryan
Move from London England to St. Louis Missouri. It's so so different. My girls use to belong to swimming club and they enjoy it very much in London. Now they swim in high school team and join the swim club. My girls said U.S. is the the land of opportunities. They are hopping some day they can make it just like Ryan and others. It's so great to see him give back to swimming world. It will be even better for the girls to meet him:)
Very cool! This makes me think better of him. He came to Minnesota, but kept to himself, wore his shades all the time, and didn't seem to want to be bothered. He, as well as the other Olympic swimmers, can really help keep interest in the sport by reaching out to the younger kids and give them inspiration to keep swimming.
I totally agree Barb. We met Ryan at the Austin Grand Prix and he was so kind to all the kids and adults. He posed endlessly for pics and autographs. He talked to the kids before and after races and acted like he was just another swimmer unlike other olympians who ducked out the back door and ignored requests for autographs. I have never seen or met another star who is as generous as Ryan Lochte.
Thanks Ryan Lotche for giving your time to the amazing young swimmers in the USA. Some clubs... Olympics bound. Some clubs... college prep. Eldon Dolphins -- A summer league -- community spirit -- team spirit -- serving all abilities -- all of them have the heartbeat of chamions. God Bless!
I know our team would love to have him come and get us going. We are a group from different communties and ages that love to swim. I would love if it could happen to us!!!! Swimming is the best sport anyone can have for life!!!
Great for Ryan Lochte! Ryan got a success step from swimming to the ambassador of swimoutlet.com. What a great role swimmer rather than others from USA that can make friendship easily. Some teens were surprised. Which swimming team he taught on this video?
Has Ryan given any thought to some international travel? I help coordinate a swim team of some 56 kids at the American Community School in Amman, Jordan. We are parent-run and parent funded and always appreciate any support and encouragement along the way. We have a coach who is a former Jordanian national swimmer who puts in long hours to coach our kids as well as others. We could offer Ryan free room and board! Despite what you might see on the news, Amman is quiet and life goes on.
