Ryan Lochte stands a good chance of sweeping the 2012 Olympics!
He's so ripped and talented, he was a natural choice for the cover of Men's Health!
On finally beating Michael Phelps and setting the first world record since performance-enhancing suits were banned in 2009:
"The World Championships were just an appetizer of what I’m capable of doing."
Ryan on his ferocious spirit for training and races:
"Pain, tolerance, endurance—when it comes down to that point, there’s always something left. You just have to find it."
Lochte on staying positive even after losing to Michael Phelps in a meet in March:
"During heavy training, I’m not great because I’m so beat up."
Ryan on feeling confident that his best is yet to come:
"I know I haven’t had those perfect swims yet."
Ryan on his secret fuel:
"My recovery meal is two grilled chicken breasts with Alfredo sauce, whole grain spaghetti, and a salad with lemon juice and olive oil."
He's so great!
Best of luck at the Summer Games!
