OIympic swimmers Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte piss in the swimming pool and have admitted to doing so during London 2012 warm-up sessions.
While most of us have to convince ourselves that people do not pee in the pool while swimming in public baths, it appears that Olympic athletes have a different set of rules.
Phelps is the most decorated Olympic athlete of all time but it is questionable whether many people, however in awe of his swimming prowess, would choose to slosh around in his urine.
The 18-time gold medallist spoke out after his London 2012 Olympic wins to support Ryan Lochte, who caused an outcry when he said he admitted to pissing in the pool at the Aquatics Centre.
Phelps, 27, said we should all relax about the issue.
“Everybody pees in the pool. It’s kind of a normal thing to do for swimmers. When we’re in the water for two hours, we don’t really get out to pee. Chlorine kills it so it’s not bad,” he said.
Ryan Lochte: Possibly peeing in the pool
Lochte, 28, who has won five Olympic golds, and recently claimed that the Olympic village is one big sex party, said: “I think there’s just something about getting into chlorine water that you just automatically go.”
So did Lochte piss in the pool during the London 2012 Games?
“Not during the races, but I sure did before in warm-up.”
Well that’s OK then isn’t it.
