Next time you catch yourself in a fantasy about Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte, keep this in mind: He pees in the pool. And he’s not the only one, according to Carly Geehr, a former USA Swimming national team member. In response to a question on Quora.com asking how many competitive swimmers go No. 1 in the pool, Geehr provided the stunning answer of “Nearly 100 percent.” "Some deny it, some proudly embrace it, but everyone does it," she revealed. Geehr said most peeing takes place during warm-ups and practices, but she added it isn't unheard of for a competitor to go while standing on the blocks. Did that just ruin it for you? [Source]
