Once again confirming that he is the #1 Olympian of all time.

Welcome to our ppppppppppppool. Notice there's lots of pee in it.
 
2012-08-07 10:32:14 AM
I just tested the pH of the pool. It's all P, no H.
 
2012-08-07 10:35:19 AM
80% of people pee in the pool. The other 20% lie about it.

Shudder. I swim a lot (5-8 miles a week) and I honestly don't think I've pissed in a pool since I was 3. I might understand the competition nerves argument but during a workout? It's really not that hard to get out, hit the bathroom and come back- takes less than 2 minutes.

/Off to the pool now. Will piss *before* I dive in.

New way to drug test. If the water around you turns a certain color you dope.

That news was bound to trickle out eventually.

Pissing? Meh. I like to swim to the bottom of the deep end, squeeze out a deuc and then swim as far as I can before surfacing.

Yeah, if you can't hold it long enough to get out of the pool, urine trouble.

At least show a good picture of her!! Phelp has brought great honor to this country, we owe him the courtesy of showing his girlfriend in the best possible light. We can't let people think he is dating an common looking woman.

Do any of the competitors "drop the kids off at the pool"?

well, I guess this answers the question of why swimmers spit water all the time

I can see it now:

Hey, your drug test came up positive.

But I've never taken drugs... it must've been from some pool water that I accidentally drank while swimming that last race.
 
2012-08-07 11:30:48 AM
After the article about swimmers spitting this is even grosser.

Lochte, you used to be a ten in my book. But with you're lack-luster performance and pissing in the pool, you get knocked down a peg or two. Now you're an eight.

This is exactly what I was coming to say. These people all taste the pool, typically before and after the race. And, they pee in it too, apparently.

What else, Phelps? Now's the time to come clean.

Ah, well, here's the thing. Olympians swim 5-8 miles a day, not per week. Getting out to pee breaks up your workout. And, as they basically live in a frickin pool, they don't really give a crap about anyone else in there. So, yeah, they pee in it. I used to when I swam and played water polo as well.

Swimming workouts are timed sets: clock starts at 0, swim 500 yards, at 7 minutes swim 100 yards backstroke, at 8:20, swim 100 back, at 9:40, swim 100 back...and this lasts for 2-3 hours. There usually isn't more than a 60-90 second break at any point. You can get out to use a toilet, but few do, especially the ones who really want to get better and don't want to mess up their coach's workout.

On my team, the best swimmers swam in lane 1 - I only made it into lane 2 by my senior year. There was one pretty big jerk who would stand up against the lane line, pee, then use his hands to push it into the next lane. GROSS.

I used to swim competitively too, albeit not at an Olympic level. I've had my share of multi-hour workouts, and somehow I managed. Skip one of the dozen 200 reps you're doing in a set and you're good.

I did remember though I did do it once, albeit it was in a lake and I was in a wet suit and SCUBA gear. It would have been a royal freaking pain to get out and undo everything, plus frankly I was freezing and pissing in a wetsuit warms you up for a few minutes. (The lake's full of fish piss anyway)

/Feel great when swimming until one of the swim team members gets in the next lane over. I just have to console myself with the fact I'm 25 years older and slower than they are...

An extremely awesome prank would be to put that 'pee indicator' into the pool during a competition.

We get it, you are really upset that people pee in the pool. Yet everyone is going to continue to do it because it's easier than getting out and peeing when you're the only one bothering to care.

I think that would be an excellent addition to the synchronized diving events :)

Perhaps the medical profession would like to chime in, but I'm guessing healthy swimmers' pee is relatively clear and mostly water anyway, particularly after a long period of exertion. Gatorade in, water out.
 
2012-08-07 10:51:55 PM
When I go swim laps I find that by the end I'm usually 1-2 pounds lighter just from sweating. So you're also swimming in a pool full of sweat as well.

It's probably safe to say that the people who are competitive at the Olympic level were a lot more single-minded about their training than you were.

Reminds me of when I saw a documentary on the making of "The Abyss." During the dive sequences, the cast and crew were at the bottom of a 20 foot water tank for 10-12 hours a day, and many were not allowed to leave the tank the whole time.

Apparently, there's more piss on the screen in that movie than the R. Kelly tape.
