Ryan Lochte and Kayla Rae Reid Welcome 2nd Child, Daughter Liv Rae Lochte

12-time Olympic medalist and World Record holder Ryan Lochte and wife Kayla Rae Reid welcomed their second child today, a daughter named Liv Rae Lochte.

According to Lochte’s Instagram, Liv Rae weighs in at 7 pounds and 8 ounces, is 20 inches long, and was born at 10:20 am today, June 17th, 2019.

Lochte and Reid’s first child, a boy named Caiden Zane Lochte, was born on June 8th, 2017. Lochte and Reid married in January, 2018.

Lochte is currently out of competition, serving a 14-month suspension for intravenous infusions in a volume greater than 100mL in a 12-hour period without a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE). Lochte’s suspension began on May 24th, 2018, so he will be allowed to compete again before summer’s end, but was ruled out of both the 2018 Pan Pacific Championships and 2019 World Championships, as well as 2018 U.S. Nationals, as a result of the ban.

Over the past year, Lochte appeared on Celebrity Big Brother, while still continuing to train, and has sought treatment for alcohol addiction.

Does anybody know if he is properly training? A year ago he would usually post stuff on instagram about his workouts, he has completely stopped doing that in the past few months. In the last vlog from Cody Miller (TYR photo shoot) he kind of looked in shape even though it was nowhere close to what he looked like in his prime, he didn’t have the definition you’d expect from someone training 60-70K a week. I’m guessing if TYR keep on paying him it must be because they expect him to deliver in Tokio?

Phelps lacked definition a year out from London and Rio. Lochte consciously stopped posting any swimming related stuff, and only posting stuff with his kids, because that vitamin infusion photo is what landed him the suspension. I don’t think he was doing 60-70K with Marsh in the leadup to Rio, and I think Troy is monitoring his fatigue level with singles mixed in, instead of constant doubles. My guess is he’s focused on the 200 IM/200 free and would be smart to give up on the 400 IM, even though it’s a relatively weak event for the U.S. after Kalisz. His obvious advantage is that he has more raw swimming talent across the 4 strokes in all courses than anyone… Read more »

I saw Phelps at the Charlotte ultra swim a year out from Rio. He looked terrible, completely out of shape. He had to be helped out of the pool after several of his races. It was then he decided to refocus and get ready for Rio. That was about 15 months out and he was able to get back into it.

I saw phelps a few weeks before nationals in 2015, and he was the most jacked I’ve ever seen him, and I was at meets with him in 07 and 08, and he came to train with us a couple of times in 07 as well.

Given what happened in San Antonio two months after you saw him, I think it’s more likely that you were witnessing an older athlete who was in the middle of intense training.

I am anticipating a Lochte comeback in the ISL, not the Olympics. I’d be surprised if no one has picked him up yet.

Lochte is not eligible for the ISL, because of his doping violation.

Especially given that it was the strong stuff —- vitamin water.
