WASHINGTON (CBSDC) — Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte proved he can hang with some of the flashiest American athletes when he whipped out his $25,000 diamond grill during the summer games. Now it seems as if he’s following the dating habits of plenty of others, too.
According to Lochte’s mom, the Olympic swimmer likes going for the gold immediately with women.
In an interview on NBC’s “Today,” Ike Lochte says her son is into “one-night stands.”
“He goes out on one-night stands,” she told Today. “He’s not able to give fully to a relationship because he’s always on the go.”
In a recent interview with ESPN Magazine, Lochte said one of his big mistakes was having a girlfriend in the 2008 Olympics. “Now I’m single, so London should be really good,” he said.
He also estimated that 70 to 75 percent of Olympians are partaking in some sexual activity while at the games.
Lochte – who also previously told Women’s Health magazine that he sleeps naked and that women look hottest only wearing his button-down shirt – will compete against Michael Phelps in Thursday’s 200 meters individual medley.
