Ryan Lochte appears this week on In Depth with Graham Bensinger, discussing a range of topics in and out of the pool.

Among the subjects discussed with Bensinger are his previous television appearances, including a stint on Alex Rodriguez’s CNBC reality show, Back in the Game, that Lochte said didn’t portray he and wife Kayla Rae Reid in the way they expected or yield the promised financial arrangements.

On a tour of Lochte’s home in Gainesville, Fla., Lochte reveals that he’s missing one of his Olympic gold medals:

“There is actually one missing in 2008. And it is the gold. The 200 backstroke one. I don’t know where it is. … I don’t know where it is. I have a couple guesses.”

Lochte also opens up about the aftermath of his scandal at the 2016 Olympics, his 14-month anti-doping ban, changes in his personal life like his parents’ divorce (his father, Steve Lochte, is also his coach) and the revelation of his goal for the 2021 Olympics: To lower his world record in the 200 individual medley, set at the 2011 World Championships.
