When swimmer Ryan Lochte jumps into the pool in Rio, the water won’t be the only thing that’s blue. Over the weekend the Olympian dyed his hair ice-blue.

Lochte, 31, posted a photo at a hair salon getting ready to apply the dye and later gave followers a look at the final product.

"New look.... Here We Go #Rio #2016 thanks @jennjonesatl #turnup #lightblue," Lochte captioned the photo.
