Ryan Lochte Debuts His First PSA
September 28, 2012
Ryan Lochte appears in his first Public Service Announcement since earning gold at the London Olympics in a spot that seeks to improve access to safe water in developing countries.
Lochte teams up with fellow Olympic swimmer Conor Dwyer in the PSA, which highlights the fact that many women and girls around the world spend up to four hours a day collecting drinking water.
The two busy Olympians then name off all the things they could accomplish during the same four-hour period, including swimming for several hours, eating multiple meals, updating Facebook, calling their parents, boxing for 30 minutes, watching TV and paddle boarding.
