Olympians let it all hang out in London
Training for the Olympics takes years of dedication. World class athletes train for hours a day, seven days a week, and stick to strict diet and workout regimens while preparing for the Olympics every four years, but most have a small window of opportunity to let it all hang out once they are done competing and the Olympic games are still going on.
Athletes such as Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte, American swimmers who each earned multiple medals during the swimming competitions, are among many who have left the field of competition and started looking for fun.
Phelps was photographed out on the town with his girlfriend, Megan Rossee, and his gold medals. Lochte piled into a limo with friends to hit some of London’s hottest party spots.
As the Olympic games continue to wind down and different events come to a close, more and more athletes will be free to relax for a few days before returning home to hit the gym once again.
