Jock Ryan Lochte plays in ATL before Olympics

Add this share

Brotastic swimmer Ryan Lochte – and several members of the U.S. Swim Team – spent the weekend in Atlanta logging his final tune-up before the Olympics in Rio. True to form, Lochte sexed up anywhere he went.

Whether showing off those Gold Medal abs in Georgia Tech's Aquatic Center, getting that new icy blue hair do at Akasa Salon on Edgewood Avenue or eating upscale at 5Church Atlanta in Midtown, Lochte enjoyed his time in the ATL – and we enjoyed gawking every chance we got.

Lochte last graced the Morning Fix before the London Games in 2012. But it's nice to see the 11-time Olympic medalist in Atlanta before heading to his fourth Olympic appearance. And Lochte isn't shy about showing off on Instagram. His 532,000 followers appreciate it.

Up Up and Away!!
