Ryan Lochte Fails to Qualify for Tokyo Olympics, Gets Emotional While Discussing His Future

Ryan Lochte has failed to qualify for the 2021 Summer Olympics in Tokyo and he’s emotionally opening up about his future.

The 36-year-old Olympian has already won 12 medals throughout his career from swimming at four prior Olympics.

Ryan finished in seventh place in 200-meter individual medley at the U.S. Olympic swimming trials on Friday (June 18) in Omaha, Nebraska. Only the top two athletes move on to the Olympics.

“Swimming has taken me so far,” Ryan said during a press conference after the meet. “Coming out of the water, just what’s swimming’s done for me and my family is unbelievable. To me, the world’s greatest sport. Very emotional. I was kind of taking it all in. I really wanted to be on the Olympic team. I think this is probably my most important swim meet that I’ve ever had in my entire career, the one that meant the most to me. So falling short and feeling like I let everyone down was one of the hardest things.”

“But I had my family there, my kids, they got to watch their daddy swim, so I guess, you know, that means everything to me,” he added.

Cody Simpson Achieves a Personal Best, But Falls Short in First Olympic Trials Event

Cody Simpson just competed in his first swimming trial for the 2021 Summer Olympics!

The 24-year-old singer is taking a break from his music career to focus on his goal of competing on Australia’s swimming team for the Olympics.

Cody competed in the 100 freestyle trial and he finished 23rd out of 92 swimmers. His time of 50.22 seconds was a personal best, but it wasn’t enough for him to advance to the Olympics in that event.

Cody‘s next event, which is his preferred event, is the 100 butterfly.

“I wanted to just get up and do something before the 100 ’fly otherwise I would be waiting around all week,” Cody told the Associated Press. “Just being around all these athletes … I love this, I really want to do this for a while. My goal this meet would be to try to make that final in the 100 ’fly, that would be nice As long as I’m improving, that’s all I can really ask for.”

Cody recently broke his silence about his split from Miley Cyrus.
