i’m sorry. nut, i just saw a post about how ryan lochte simply beat michael phelps by not trying. and how phelps is the hardest working athlete out there. uhm, excuse me? non-swimmer? LOCHTE puts in the hard-work. starting 4 years ago, when he was overshadowed by phelps, he made it his goal to make london “his time”. he changed his eating habits, his work ethic, and the way he trains out of the water. PHELPS, on the other hand, as clary said, does not deserve it. though he is fast, he does not train well. he has a lot more potential. now, i’m not bashing phelps or anything. i’m just proving my point that lochte works harder and deserves that gold. but, there’s no need to hate on phelps for not getting on the podium. think about it, he has done more than any of you will ever do. just to make it to the olympics is a pain is the ass. but to get 4th? anybody would want to be in his position. oh yeah. another thing, this is not “lochte’s time” as i stated before. it started in ‘09. just saying. and yeah, he’s pretty attractive, but can’t you respect what he has done to the sport of swimming? fuck these non-swimmers. and even these stupid ass summer leaguers.
