Best avoid the Olympic swimming pool until it's drained after the games: American swimming star Ryan Lochte, who won five medals in London, has admitted to urinating in the pool.

Not during the races, he told U.S. broadcaster Ryan Seacrest — "but I sure did in warmup."

Um ... why? "I think there's just something about getting into chlorine water that you just automatically go."
