Michael Phelps: ‘Everybody Pees in the Pool’
I just hope this is not the case at hotels where we stay.
In an exclusive interview with the Wall Street Journal, Michael Phelps, the most decorated Olympic athlete of all time, broke this news: people, on occasion, relieve themselves in the pool.
Fellow Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte caused a bit of a stir recently when he reportedly said that he has, on occasion, urinated while in the pool; Phelps, however, suggested that it was no big deal. “I think everybody pees in the pool,” Phelps said. “It’s kind of a normal thing to do for swimmers. When we’re in the water for two hours, we don’t really get out to pee.” He added “Chlorine kills it so it’s not bad.”
