11-time Olympic medalist, Ryan Lochte, guest starred on ABC’s Extreme Weight Loss. The episode aired June, 2014. Watch Lochte lend his swim lessons knowledge to help Jayce overcome his fear of open water swimming:
Extreme Weight Loss is a television show on ABC. People volunteer to get training and advice from star-trainer Chris Powell. The show is essentially Extreme Makeover with an emphasis on massive weight-loss.
Lochte’s no stranger to struggle. He suffered a knee injury last year that has made his training spotty ever since. Despite the challenges, Lochte has shown speed, notably beating Michael Phelps in the 100 butterfly at the 2014 Mesa Grand Prix, Phelps first race back since retiring at the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Lochte showed a little more promise at the Bulldog Grand Slam in the 200 IM and 100 free, signaling he’ll be ready to race and make the US Pan Pac and US World Championship teams at US Nationals in Irvine, Aug 6-10.
