Hey Ryan! Great Job!! How about a visit to my Special Olympics Aquatics athletes in Westchester County NY? My athletes would love you to visit and inspire them as we prepare for NY State Games in Utica!!! We have some amazing athletes!!
It would be great to see Ryan at the Blue Wave pool. We are one of the oldest pool in the Brandon Florida are. Home of Bennet , Correira and some others. it would encourage our youth ..we sure need it in our pool.
Ryan, I just viewed your delivery video before heading off to A Champs at the University of Pittsburgh this morning with the swimmers from the South Fayette Aqua Club. What a wonderful thing you are doing to promote swimming and fun for the future Olympians of this sport. The South Fayette Aqua Club would be blessed for you to surprise us with your visit.
Teh Bridgman Sea-Bees is a team that personifies swimming. I remember when I swam in my younger years what that meant to me and the inmpact swimming has had on my life. The coaches (one happened to be my daughter) Allow the kids to have fun, learn and grow both is swimming and their personal lives. Having a swim idol visit would provide a life experience they woudl cherish for teh rest of their lives.
Hey Ryan! I am the Mom of one of the Ryanettes from the Short Course Championships at OSU in Columbus, Ohio. The Ryanettes have been following your three rules! Listen to your coach, set goals & have fun! They would absolutely LOVE a visit from you at their home in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio! Two of these YMCA Tigersharks have become best buddies with Rex! He is so good to the girls, just like you were! Thank you!!!
We are a small club of about 150 kids in Texas. What a great way to motivate the swimmers to work hard. Great idea swim outlet. I will keep my fingers crossed that we get a visit from Swim Outlet and Ryan.
We love Swim Outlet and you. We are glad you have teamed up with them. Our team and coaching staff would love you to come visit us so please come to NJ. Our head coach has a puppy like yours maybe bring him too. We loved watching you break the 2 world records recently and keeping Phelps on his toes. Or is it the other way around? Congrats!
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.
