“Only a fool has a pool and keeps it full. Only a traitor doesn’t drain his pool.” US Bombs, “Jaks”
Ryan Lochte recently obtained two gold and two bronze medals in the 2008 Beijing Olympics for his swimming. He even set a world record for the 200 meter backstroke. However, the Olympic trials in July were in question for him due to an injured ankle acquired while (skateboarding) dropping from the deck of his house, as noted by the folks at Yahoo!Sports.

Previously, Lochte had shown up to events with the telltale road rash of a skateboarder, which has caused a commotion amongst his coaches and peers. He recently told reporters that the New York Times that he would love to skate the Great Wall of China, but his coaches forbid him from packing his board.
According to the folks at silverfishlongboarding.com, Lochte rides a Sector 9 trilam, and was also seen riding a “trick board.”
All of this recent information about this athlete begs the question: Is Lochte a true core skater? Would a true skater allow himself to SWIM in a swimming pool? A solid slasher over the deathbox of an Olympic grade pool seems like a challenge worthy of a gold medal. Or does he even care, as he signed a lucrative seven figure endorsement contract with Speedo? Does he laugh to the bank, or skate one?
