BARCELONA, Spain, August 2. THE swimming community is abuzz over Ryan Lochte's performances tonight at the world swimming championships, including his two gold medals and the ability to top qualifying in the 100 butterfly. He stopped by the press conference room to talk about what contributed to his special day.

"I love racing" was Lochte's comment about what helped him tonight, as well as his enthusiasm over training to race in multiple events. He also talks about why he wasn't outwardly excited about winning the 200 backstroke, and how he thinks the men's 400 IM will shake out without him in the race.
