MESA, Arizona, April 25. DESPITE winning the 200 freestyle at the Arena Grand Prix in Mesa, Ariz., Ryan Lochte was not happy seeing “1:49” on the scoreboard next to his name, and voiced that disappointment in this video interview.

Lochte also talked about changing up all four of his strokes, including his new straight-arm freestyle, and noted that he didn’t feel that he had put in the kind of training to handle the 200 free-200 back double in finals tonight.
