Gold medalist Ryan Lochte is ready to show off his moves away from the water, at least for a few months.

The Olympian told reporters that he wants to become a contestant on ABC’s reality series “Dancing with the Stars,” according to Today.

He also doesn’t want to come alone, hinting that he would like to resume a certain famed rivalry.

“I mean since I am so used to competing against Michael Phelps, yeah, I’d have him on the show,” he told reporters, according to iVillage.

Of course, the new season of the show will be an “All-Stars” edition, so we can scratch out seeing him this fall. That said, athletes have been some of the most popular contestants and a future appearance could be in the cards.

“Nothing is in the works yet,” a show source told TODAY.com, “but rest assured, either (Lochte or Phelps) — or even better, both of them — would be welcome in the ballroom.”
