Promoting his new reality series on E!, What Would Ryan Lochte Do, the 11-time Olympic medalist sat down with late night anchor David Letterman.

Out of this Letterman interview certain nuggets of truth were learned:

- IM means you swim every stroke in one race.

- Michael Phelps probably retired because of too much swimmer’s ear.

- A medley is also an opportunity to sing.

- “My god, you were in 3 Olympics! Were you aware of that,” asked Letterman? Lochte nodded yes.

- Lochte won silver in the 6-hour treading water competition.

- If Letterman had a pool, what would Lochte do? Answer: break records

- Letterman thought gymnastics was the most-watched Olympic sport. 

- If Lochte’s coaches had it their way, he’d be encased in bubble wrap.

    Tossup who was worse–Lochte or Letterman. Actually I’d say Letterman, he made Lochte look even worse than usual with his inane comments and questions.

      Letterman was just feigning his lack of knowledge in swimming to get his jokes. He swam for a season at Ball State in Muncie, IN! Unless swimmers at Ball State simply don’t know what an IM is, LOL.

  2. Billy says:

    I found Ryan to be a good sport and did a good job. He let Dave flex his comedic muscles and did not get into his way.

    Let Ryan be Ryan, he’ll do just fine.

  3. Observer says:

    Ryan did well with Dave. Dave’s a tough guy to have an interview with sometimes.

  4. viewer says:

    I also feel Lochte did well.
