Bio

Ryan Lochte is an American competitive swimmer and an eleven-time Olympic medalist (five gold, three silver, three bronze). His seven individual Olympic medals rank as second all-time in men's swimming.

A cultural obsession and arguably the single-most desired young male athlete in the country, the 11-time Olympic medalist returned from the 2012 London Games as a global phenomenon and focal point of media frenzy, going on to break yet another world record at the Short Course World's in Istanbul in the 100 IM, just months after his remarkable performance at the London Olympics.

A family man through and through, Ryan credits his parents (both swim coaches) for his success, and his siblings for his motivation. A University of Florida graduate, Ryan was a two-time NCAA Swimmer of the Year, 24-time NCAA All-American, and 7-time NCAA Champion.

Ryan's primary focus remains underwater, but also had high hopes for the impact What Would Ryan Lochte Do? could have for the sport of swimming. In his own words, his goal for the show was to "give swimming the spotlight it deserves. Swimming remains the most-watched event in the Olympic Games, but people only get to see it once a year."

He aimed to "bring the sport of swimming into American households on a daily basis, just like the NFL, NBA, MLB, etc."

Covering more magazines than your average A-list Hollywood actor, Ryan also stays busy with his blue chip roster of corporate sponsorships (Speedo, Nissan, Gatorade, AT&T, etc.), and when he can, tries to break away to spend time with the love of his life, his Doberman, Carter.
