When you are an 11-time Olympic medalist and generally considered the best male swimmer in the world, you can train anywhere you want to.
Ryan Lochte told The Observer Monday in an exclusive interview he has decided to train at SwimMAC Carolina through the 2016 Olympics in Brazil, saying of Charlotte: “I love this city.”
“I was at a college town, at the University of Florida for so long,” Lochte said Monday. “I love that place to death. But I’m getting to a point in my life where I’m getting older and it’s time for a change.”
