In the world of swimming, Lochte stands out like a cubist painting among charcoal drawings. Mark Schubert, the USA Swimming national team director, said, “Not only is he an amiable chap, he’s a hoot.”
Lochte is all business in the water, a hard worker and keen competitor who will not give an inch. But away from the pool, Lochte is a skateboard-riding, rap lyrics-spouting, break-dancing goofball.
