MESA, Arizona, April 13. IT isn't a matter of IF for Ryan Lochte, it's a matter of WHEN. Yes, it is true, the Gainesville, Florida resident has admitted that he will move to California as early as August of this year. The timing of the move (and location) depends on whether or not his new E! Reality TV show “What Would Ryan Lochte Do?” gets picked up for a second season.
Lochte raced the 200 IM on the last night of finals at the Mesa Arena Grand Prix, coming in second to Darian Townsend.
200 IM recap: Tucson Ford's Darian Townsend held off the world-record holder Ryan Lochte in the event with a 2:01.04 for the win. The two turned fairly close together at the 150-meter mark, but Townsend dropped a 28.36 final 50 split to secure the win. Lochte, meanwhile, put together a 2:01.90 for second place as he just didn't have enough at the end to push past Townsend.
