Updates from Monday, Jan. 13

Braden Keith of swimswam.com provides some encouraging news as Ryan Lochte continues to rehab his MCL injury: 

Ryan Lochte was listed on the psych sheets for the Austin Grand Prix, and though he won’t be swimming there, his return from an MCL injury will be coming much, much sooner than the mid-summer that he and his family were originally expecting.

Lochte’s targeted return date will be the 2014 Orlando Grand Prix which runs from February 13th-15th, according to SwimMAC Carolina CEO David Marsh and SwimMAC Team Elite Director of High Performance Jeff Dugdale

Social media updates show that Lochte has been back in the water training for a while, and has gradually been increasing his activity on land as well.
