GOLD COAST, Australia, August 16. RYAN Lochte, ever the adrenaline-junky, is already hoping to get in some surfing after the 2014 Pan Pacific Championships.  Lochte also reminds everyone that he was one of the very first that said Michael Phelps would not stay retired after London.

Lochte met with the Australian media after getting himself acclimated to the time zone change.  Lochte also explains what type of role model Phelps has become in the sport of swimming.  Once the interviewers decided to move away from the Phelps-centered questioning, Lochte had the chance to explain how much of a roller coaster his year has been.  Additionally, he talks about wanting to go a best time every time out, even as a 30 year old.  He’s excited to get back to his cross fit training once this summer is done.  He’s had to stay away from the more extreme training while rehabbing his knee.
