Olympic Hobbies: What Athletes Do On Their Time Off [PHOTOS]
It’s hard to believe that it’s already day seven of the Olympic Games. For some athletes, their job is just beginning, while for others their time in the spotlight is already done. Take Tyler Clary for example: yesterday he finished his final race in the 200 meter butterfly.
For the remaining 10 days in London he’ll have to find something else to do. It’s a good thing that swimming isn’t the only thing that Tyler is good at.
“I’m interesting because I’ve got five or six other things going on outside the pool at any one time,” Tyler told NBC. Among his favorite things to do include archery, building race cars in his garage and DJing in his spare time.
But Tyler isn’t the only Olympian whose interests extend beyond swimming. Gold medal synchronized divers Kelci Bryant and Abigail Johnston are both avid rubber duck collectors and Ryan Lochte has dreams of becoming a designer. Ryan’s mom Ileana told NBC that he loves to draw and hopes he pursues design later in life. Check out our gallery of Olympians and their hobbies below.
