File this away in the “Too much information” file. AP sports writer Rob Harris reports that American swimmer Ryan Lochte, who won five medals at the London Olympics, has been using the Olympic pools for more than just swimming.

Don’t worry – you weren’t watching him urinate on television. But as he told Ryan Seacrest …

“I sure did in warm-up.”

“I think there’s just something about getting into chlorine water that you just automatically go.”

Let the speculation begin as to what kind of endorsement deals this could spring.
