(AP) Ryan Lochte has put his TV career on hold.


It's time to go swimming again.


The American star will lead another powerhouse men's team into the swimming portion of the world championships, which begins Sunday. He hopes to compete in seven events and doesn't have to worry about being overshadowed by longtime rival Michael Phelps.


Phelps retired after the London Olympics, though there's plenty of speculation he's plotting a comeback in time for the 2016 Rio Games.


Lochte hopes it happens, that's not his concern at the moment. He's more focused on turning in the sort of performance that's expected from him, even though he took time off after last summer's Olympics and admittedly hasn't been able to train as hard as usual because of commitments outside the pool.
