Ryan Lochte's New Family Helped Him Find His Spark Again

Ryan Lochte is ready to leave 2016 in the past and focus on the future. The swimmer, who faced controversy at the Olympics last summer, is engaged, has a baby on the way, and is looking forward to improving his swimming abilities.

“By all means, 2016 is in the past,” the 32-year-old Olympian told Today. “Having a family is the best thing that could ever happen to me. I had lost my spark, but I have found it again.

“I am swimming faster,” he said. “I have more of a purpose to start training harder, to have more determination and motivation. My goals are high and my dreams are high. New year, new me.”
