Ryan Lochte is a changed man.

Peacock just released the first trailer for In Deep With Ryan Lochte, a new documentary that follows the Olympic gold medalist's journey to the Tokyo games, which have been postponed until 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic. In the clip, the 35-year-old reflects on past mistakes, including the Rio robbery scandal that tarnished his reputation.

"Something could have ended my life because I was stupid. I went from making millions to zero," Lochte says of losing sponsorships.

"The person that I am today, if I saw that Ryan Lochte, I would knock his ass out," the swimmer adds. "There's so much more to life. Wake up."

"This is the most pressure I've ever had in my entire life. If i don't make the Olympic team, they won't see the change that I have made," he says in the trailer. "It's all or nothing now."
