LONDON (AP) — Ryan Lochte said it was his time at the London Olympics.
He’ll have to wait until next time.
The swimmer who speaks like a laidback surfer dude concluded his second games with two golds, two silvers, one bronze and a fourth-place finish. Impressive, but not quite up to the high expectations that Lochte had set for himself.
Still, he says he’s “pretty satisfied.”
His coach, Gregg Troy, says what Lochte accomplished in London was “way above average” but sometimes high expectations aren’t met.
Lochte closed his meet Thursday night with a bronze in the 200-meter backstroke and a silver in the 200 individual medley behind his rival Michael Phelps.
