Olympian Ambassador Ryan Lochte Tours the SPIRE Complex and Shares Video


Just how sold the 35-year-old Olympian is on the SPIRE Academy’s Swimming program is evident in his most recent video, in which he is seen touring the Academy’s swim complex. SPIRE Academy features a 10-lane, 50-meter Olympic size pool with 2 movable bulkheads, a 25-yard recreation pool, 4 therapeutic pools to support training and rehab activities, full locker room facilities, and a world-class SPIRE Performance Training Center.

“I’ve been swimming since I was 5 years old, so I’ve seen just about everything in terms of training programs and facilities,” said Lochte. “But SPIRE is special in so many ways. From an athlete development and training perspective, we have the potential to build something here that is totally unique. I’m excited to be a part of that process, and I look forward to helping SPIRE make a major impact on the sport of swimming– both in and out of the pool.”
