Ryan Lochte Do I Swim Blindfolded??? … Jeah.

EXCLUSIVE

Ryan Lochte swims blindfolded. 

And, he’s been doing it WAY before the “Bird Box Challenge” became a thing. 

First off, DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME — IT’S SUPER DANGEROUS AND YOU MIGHT DIE. 

But, Lochte is a pro — surrounded by a team of coaches — and tells TMZ Sports there’s a real benefit to swimming laps with his eyes covered. 

“I do that sometimes just for fun in practice. I’ll swim blindfolded a couple laps just to make sure my stroke count is perfect.”

Again … DON’T TRY THIS AT HOME!!! 

Speaking of training, Lochte says he’s laser-focused on competing in the 2020 Olympic games in Tokyo … even after the drama he was involved in during the last Olympics, in Brazil. 

You know … when he was arrested for allegedly trashing a gas station in Rio. That became an international incident, and U.S. Swimming banned him from competition for 10 months

He’s now 34-years-old — but tells TMZ Sports he’s got his eye on a gold medal … and wouldn’t put himself through all the hellacious training to settle for a silver or a bronze. 

Good luck!!
