Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte’s enthusiastic mother, Ike Lochte, may have said a little too much about her son’s sex life during a recent interview in London. “He goes out on one-night stands. He’s not able to give fully to a relationship because he’s always on the go,” she told Today.
Lochte fans shouldn’t be too surprised by this news (though they can go right ahead and be surprised that his mother delivered it). Last month, Ryan told ESPN that he was single and very ready to mingle in London — he even guessed that about 75% of Olympic athletes hook up at the games.
“My last Olympics, I had a girlfriend — big mistake. Now I’m single, so London should be really good. I’m excited,” he says. “Hey, sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do.”
No one will ever accuse him of being particularly media-savvy.
