Ryan Lochte is moving on.
No, no, no ... not from swimming, but from Gainesville, Fla. The former Florida Gator has decided it's time to move out of his college town.
"Being in a college town for so long, it does get old," Lochte said.
He's got tons of support in Gainesville coaching, nutritionist, strength coach and the like. But it's apparently not enough to keep him in "Gator Country."
"I'm getting older and I think it's time for me to move on," Lochte said. "I'm still going to a little training there, but I definitely want to move somewhere else and probably start a new life."
Lochte is planning to move to California, probably the Los Angeles area. He needs to stay warm and needs to keep surfing, he said.
