In an interview with TODAY.com, Ryan Lochte’s mother, Ike Lochte, revealed that the Olympic swimmer is too busy for a girlfriend. And, in the process, she may have ruined his chances of ever securing a serious girlfriend.
“He goes out on one-night stands,” said Ike. “He’s not able to give fully to a relationship because he’s always on the go.”
Gee, thanks, mom.
It should come as no surprise that Ryan is a bit of a player. He’s an attractive man and, as we all know by now, Olympic athletes really, really like to have a lot of sex with each other. Still, having your mom out you as a serial one-night-stander is probably the best way for a player to ensure the long-term success of his game. That’s the kind of info that is typically better left under wraps.
Ike did have a few nice things to say about her son. “Everything he has done has been to the max,” she said. “He’s unique, loving, and he challenges himself all the time.”
Lochte is scheduled to go face-to-face with Michael Phelps for the final time in tonight’s 200-meter individual medley final.
