Ryan Lochte insists heâ€™s a changed man. He said he has everything he has ever wanted now thatâ€™s heâ€™s sober, married and the father of two children, including a baby girl born in June.
One of the most decorated swimmers in Olympic history, Lochteâ€™s approach to the sport has changed. He said itâ€™s now something he does for fun. Itâ€™s no longer his main priority.
While his life is much different, Lochte showed Sunday heâ€™s still the swimmer to beat in the 200-meter individual medley.
A day after celebrating his 35thÂ birthday, Lochte continued his comeback from a 14-month suspension and won the 200 IM in 1:57.76 on the final day of the Phillips 66 National Championships in Stanford, California.
â€œIt feels good to be back racing, be back in the sport that I love,â€ Lochte told NBC after the race.
