Ryan Lochte in tears: My dad called me great


Swimmer and Olympian Ryan Lochte grew up inspired by fellow Olympic swimmer Pablo Morales. The 1984 Gold Medalist was Lochte’s goal: break a world record while winning Olympic gold. Lochte tearfully recalls the moment his goal came true, and his father, who was also his coach, finally declared him “great.” Steve Lochte recounts the moment his son reached that goal.

This show was recorded in accordance with CDC COVID-19 safety guidelines. All crew tested negative before the production.
