Ryan Lochte is not your average Olympic swimmer.
He wears red, white and blue grills; uses the catchphrase “jeah;” and designs sunglasses and shoes as a side hustle (before the Summer Olympics 2012, of course).
In addition to having a crazy swimming regimen, Lochte has lot side hobbies, according to USA Today.
While most Olympic swimmers tend to spend their whole life in the water, 27-year-old Lochte finds the time to work hard as an entrepreneur and daredevil, in addition to being one of the best swimmers of all time.
An Orlando Sentinel report talks about some stunts, such as homemade high dives, jumping off the corner of his two-story house into the pool and some involving skateboards and fireworks. “Only a few clothes have been burnt,” according to Orlando Sentinel.
