Swimming in a certified event for the first time since June 3, 2018, Lochte posted a 1:57.88 in a 200 IM time trial at the 2019 Phillips 66 National Championships on Wednesday. That’s the 4rth-best time by an American and good enough to qualify him for Tokyo Olympics 2020.

So the Twelve-time Olympic medalist can still swim pretty fast, though he still has some work to do to carve out a spot on next year’s Olympic team. The bigger personal news for Lochte is that he checked into a rehab center for alcohol addiction last year, and seems to have gone sober outside of a self-reported glass of wine when his second child was born in June.
Lochte said: “I don’t care for [alcohol], I have bigger and better things going on in my life. I’m glad that I went to rehab and got checked out. It helped me out. It helped put things in perspective in my life, and what is really more important than going out to a bar and getting hammered or doing anything like that. I go home and I get to play with my kids and kiss and hold my wife. That to me is everything. I’m having fun swimming again. And I haven’t had fun since the 2012 Olympics, It’s been a long time where I can honestly say I’m stepping out on that pool deck with a big smile on my face, and I owe it all to my kids and my wife. They’ve been my backbone throughout this whole journey these past three years. I’m having fun again. It’s awesome and I owe it all to them.’’
The Self-destructive image he had cultivated during the glory days of his life but now that’s really encouraging to hear about a successful comeback. however, this is truly a successful comeback story in the pool with both fellow swimmers but he still has a long road ahead of him.
