Ryan Lochte dishes on Vegas party with Prince Harry

Who needs Michael Phelps? Prince Harry is all the swimming competition Ryan Lochte needs.  

On TODAY Thursday, Lochte told Matt Lauer that Harry challenged him to a race in a nightclub pool last Friday, and the Olympian accepted. 

Lochte had never met the prince until the royal's entourage approached him that night.

"His people came over to my table and said, 'Prince Harry wants to meet you,'" he said. "I was like, 'Lets meet him.' I went over there. I was fully clothed, and he says, 'You want to race me in the pool?' I took off my shirt, jumped in and we started racing."

Lochte enjoyed his brush with royalty, which began and ended with their impromptu race.  

“He’s part of the royal family and everything, but he’s really a nice guy,’’ Lochte said. “He’s really talkative. He just wanted to meet me and honestly wanted to race me. I thought that was the coolest thing.’’

Only hours later, all of the prince’s clothes came off in a now-infamous strip-billiards incident that took place in a hotel suite. Lochte did not get the invite to play strip billiards with the prince and his friends.

“He never said anything like that,’’ Lochte said. “After our race and everything, we went our separate ways. I’m kind of happy. I don’t need that.’’  

Nightclub swims notwithstanding, Lochte, 28, said that these three weeks out of the water have been his longest break from the pool since he was 10 years old.

“After racing Prince Harry, I got that competitive edge back in me and I want to get back in the water,’’ Lochte cracked.

After celebrating his birthday and dabbling in acting on '90210,' Lochte is ready to start gearing up for the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. He said he will get back to training on Monday.

“Once I landed back in the States after London, I already had my goals in mind for Rio,’’ he said. “They’re a little different now. I can’t spill everything.’’

Lochte did let it slip that he will not be swimming the same events as he did in London, where he won two golds, two silvers and a bronze to bring his career total to 11 medals.

“Whenever I go up on the blocks, I don’t want to go for second or third, I want to win,’’ he said. “So I was definitely pleased and unpleased with some of my races, so hopefully I can change that in the next four years. I’m going to be swimming different events, that’s for sure. I’m getting older, my body’s getting older, so I can’t do those long events.’’

His outside interests in fashion, acting and other pursuits will not distract him from his training, Lochte said.

“Because of the training that I’ve been doing these past eight years, I have a good background, so I know that I’m able to do other things that I wasn’t able to do before so that leads to acting, doing who knows what,’’ he said. “The whole acting thing is definitely nerve-wracking. I can swim in front of 10,000 people, no problem, but acting, that’s a little hard.’’

Well so far he is sounding like a good boy-can he keep it up?

Hope so...

Lets hope so. It seems like when young people are focused (anyone for that matter) on something, rather then themselves they tend to stay out of trouble.

I am glad he said, "I don't need that..." when he talked about Harry's strip/affair.

Indubitably the Prince experienced significant "shrinkage" in the pool and said Tally-ho to his Tally-whacker!

      Why should he keep it up? Ryan is a grown ass man so is Harry they should be able to do what they want when they want so long as they're not breaking the law and or hurting other people.So i do not care If Ryan behaves no one else should either

        Ryan Lochte has more class then Prince Harry. The Royals seems to dumb-down with each generation...or perhaps it's more noticeable. Ryan Lochte is a real gentlemen and a focused Olympian.

        How do you know he is a real gentleman? Even his own mom said he has a lot of one night stands (e.g. one data and done or "one and done") which doesn't sound very gentlemanly to me.

        Becky's probably like so many of his one night stands, enamored with his good looks/physique but deaf to the moronic drivel that comes out of his mouth. I always laugh when some women call men superficial, but women who like Lochte are NO different... one night stands, that stupid grill in his mouth, arrogant beyond belief, calling himself a 'rock star' (yes, he did, gag) etc -- 'but he's cute' they say. Then please don't whine when people like him bang you and then can't even remember your name and never bother to call you again.

        Yeah, it's funny how people have to make someone squeaky clean before they can like what they do professionally, i.e. sports star, movie star, etc... We don't own them, they are not ours. Ryan is not our pet good guy who swims for us and makes our world feel more livable. He's a human and can do what he wants. Those situations are between him and his loved ones... and as of right now he's an adult, he's not married, or dating anyone seriously that we know of.

        The Prince isn't either... so if his skivvies come off in Vegas... maybe that's his business, too.

        @Becky, not bitter, just observant. I've known a lot of young women who are attracted to bad boys (and Lochte is definitely a bad boy) and then act surprised and hurt when they get used and dumped... his own mother said he only does one night stands -- that should tell you something. "Real gentlemen" don't behave like that.

        I'm not sure if you can post links, but here's one that gives you some idea about his nature (if this link doesn't work, google "10 Reasons Why Ryan Lochte Is America’s Sexiest Douchebag") it's rather funny and enlightening.

Maybe because I can't stand people who shove themselves into the limelight so quickly after winning something. Phelps did it but it seems like he did it with more class. Anyway.. @Becky.. you sure you just don't have the hots for him?

          I find it ironic that someone would criticize another person for "trash talking" and then call that person a "douche" - why should Ryan Lochte act any classier than any OTHER American, including the above posters???

            #2.12 - Thu Aug 23, 2012 2:42 PM EDT

            what happened with Harry has absolutely nothing to do with lack of class.Its not like he was streaking outside he was behide walls and a closed door whomever took that pic and uploaded it online is more guilty in my opinion.Now i get his a public figure his a monarch.And Royals are expected to act a certain way.But his a young man his only 27 years old he was just letting his hair down a bit and having some fun.What Harry did is no different from alot of things some other people do when they're partying the difference is they aren't in the public eye so no one cares.keep in mind he will be deployed soon his probably worried for himself and others and he has done his military and royal duties whenever commanded of him and did so with Grace.I think he should get credit for that.Some people are freaking out as if he killed someone its not that serious.It wasn't that bad stupid? Yes tacky okay yeah but that does not mean in general he has no class.Some act like they want the man tarred and feathered.I say GET OVER IT

                      Wow, where have you been? Price Harry is grandson of Queen Elizabeth - just celebrated her Jubilee (60th year on the throne). You might have heard of his brother, Price William and his wife Kate - married almost one and a half years ago - big deal on TV and in the news. You probably remember Princess Diana, the late mother of William and Harry.

                        I love Ryan and I think Harry is a great guy. He is still young and just wants to have some fun. So what is the big deal leave him alone and let him have his day in the nude. Myself I think the photographers shouldn't be printing anyones picture without their written consent. Ryan is a role model for so many of our young men and women and is gorgeous to boot. By the way I am a 69 year old Grandmother and I had my share of this kind of fun when I was their age and thank God we didn't have cameras all the time like in todays world of cell phones etc.

                              Prince Harry has plenty of class! He has been taught class and etiquette since the day he was born! Have you ever thought that maybe he would like to be just like everyone else and live life? A life that doesn't involve his every move being scrutinized and judged by the media and the world? So he cuts loose once in awhile, so what? I would much rather see him cutting loose and being normal than being the stuffed shirt/skirt like his father and grandmother. Go Harry!!

                              Just because you are TAUGHT class (and etiquette), doesn't mean you HAVE class. (Not saying Harry does, or does not, but that's quite the snobbish attitude.)

                              Most of the classiest people I know were raised without the benefit of such "teaching".

                              1. People can be taught manners and etiquette, and they can be taught from childhood to have empathy for, and interest in, other people. If they are good "students", they will have "class". Diana and Charles raised their children well in this regard. Some people, even from humble backgrounds, have an innate sense of dignity, manners, and concern for others. They too have "class". Innate or learned, one isn't better than the other if the applications are the same. Good people are good people.

                              2. People with class don't draw attention to others by calling them snobs.

                              Please read a little closer Nik. I didn't call anyone a snob. I said it was a snobbish attitude. I was criticizing the behaviour (in this case, the post) and not the person.

                              There is a distinct difference between citicizing behaviour and a person.

                              For example, partying in the nude, especially in the USA, is NOT a "classy" behaviour, yet you say Harry was "raised well". So ... is HE, as a person, classy and just indulged in some "unclassy" behaviour? Or is he not a classy person? Do we criticize the BEHAVIOUR (as I did with the above post) or do we criticize the PERSON (which I did not)?

                              People with class SHOULD comment on errant behaviour. I'm sure that Charles and Diana did when teaching their sons how to behave.

                                  Why bring it up at all. What does it have to do with the children?

                                    u still didnt answer my question. it was ok to ask her, but not to ask him, see how you're all riled up by me mentioning it. well, what about the national press, talk shows, why, why, did they ask Gabby, who is a child, and not Ryan Lochte, why the double standard.

                                      Yeah, maybe if Lochte sold that STUPID $25,000 diamond grill he wears in his mouth, he could have helped his mom out. Nah, he's too interested in trying to be hip and cool to actually be thoughtful. After the interviews and behavior I saw from him during the Olympics, it's pretty obvious he's just a frat boy douchebag looking for his 15 min.

                                      @slyvag - Because you were the kind of low life that they were pandering to for ratings when they asked that question. Plus both interviews probably weren't produced and/or directed by the same people, plus maybe Lochte has a better agent than Gabby and was able to screen that question (i.e. if you want the interview, you don't ask that question.)

                                      Bottom line you're still a troll.

                                      "This phrase and phrases like "for Pete's sake" are euphemisms for the phrases "for the love of God/Christ" Nowadays phrases like "for the love of God" are commonly used, but the euphemisms are still used.
                                      Why Pete? Most likely it is a reference to the catholic Saint Peter."

                                        why didnt they ask Lochte about his parents foreclosure.

                                        Um, 'cause they were more interested in the Prince Harry story??? Chalk it up to shallow journalists.

It's time to cut the charade and tell those folks "GET A J-O-B", "FIND A CAREER", and stop pretending they are any more than the richest welfare fraud recipients.If I am wrong, please somebody, anybody, tell me what exactly do they do that deserves the people of the UK footing the bill, from birth to the grave???

                                            Try Google.... Harry is a soldier and William is a pilot. All the royal male members serve in the military in one capacity or the other.

                                              Being a "biological" father...does not make you a DAD.

                                                  I just lost any respect for Harry. Not because of the swim or the naked thing, but because he sent "his people" over to Ryan first. Hello, Harry - you're in a nightclub and you can't walk over to someone and say "Hi. I'm Harry and..."?

                                                  As Harry is the spare and not the heir, he has as much value as his closeted Uncle Andrew or his mule-faced cousin Beatrice.

                                                      When asked why he partied so, Harry was reported to have said:

Now that's a whore !!!! My God he is just a healthy normal young man and did nothing wrong, The whole problem with our world is letting scum bags take photos with out permission and selling them We need to start sending these invaders to prison !!!!!My God we lost lady Diana because of trying to get photos STOP THIS INSANITY !!!!We need to have guidelines and laws God Bless you Harry sorry you had to go through this !!

                                                          Sylviag, while I think none of it is any of our business, let me help you out here about the differences between the situations. First, Gabby's mom declared bankruptcy in February (you know before the Olympics) and Gabby is 16 and still at home. Gabby was pretty much unknown until recently and is undoubtedly going to come into some money. Tacky as it is, some people would think that news. Ryan is long emancipated, not living at home, and the news of the foreclosure of his parents just came out earlier this month. However, it was in the news so despite your claims it was published, just like with the Douglas'. Second, the article on Gabby's mom was broken by a nothing outlet and became bigger news because people thought it was a low shot. Other outlets probably have learned from the negative press given over the shot at Abby's mom and they weren't going there in this interview. They didn't go there with Gabby either. Of course, you don't have such compuction and take upon yourself to be offended for the Douglas family. Whatever, go ahead and wallow in your low class....

The word was said and only a total clueless dolt can't see there isn't any similarity. Why aren't you upset that he isn't being picked on about his hair styles too? What a maroon. Take your hair shirt and go somewhere else....

                                                              Maybe they (journalists, I assume) aren't asking Ryan about his parent's foreclosure because they're afraid he'll punch them out? Just a thought - not so sure why you're pissed at Ryan about this; it's not HIS fault that his interviewers aren't asking that question. Maybe the question to Gabby was seen in such POOR LIGHT by the public that journalists wised up and decided not to ask???

Everything I've seen/heard from him screams "Look at me! Look at me!". Phelps will always be the king of the pool and humility, Lochte will just be another obnoxious Jersey Shore-type sleazebag.

                                                                          Lochte is an arrogant, idiot. Michael Phelps is AWESOME...pot smoking and all. He seems like a true gentleman and champion. As for Prince Harry, he is just having fun and isn't hurting anyone. He is probably tired of being compared to his brother and has decided to rebel, I am sure lots of people can relate to that.

                                                                            I agree with Cheri. I like Prince Harry - I think he probably puts up with A LOT. Now Ryan Lochte - he's just a big mouthed idiot. Who "wears a grill" to a metal ceremony? Is he just retarded or something?

                                                                            Ryan needs to grow up - back the mouthing up with some action.
