Ryan Lochte is scheduled to swim competitively for the first time in more than two months at an Athens, Ga., meet next week, his publicist confirmed.
The 11-time Olympic medalist hasn’t competed since scratching out of the final day of the Mesa Grand Prix on April 26, citing an aggravation of his surgically repaired left knee. It’s undecided how much Lochte will race in Athens, his coach told SwimSwam.
Lochte’s health is a focus going into the U.S. Championships, Aug. 6-10 in Irvine, Calif., a selection meet for the biggest international meets of 2014 and 2015.
Rival Michael Phelps is also expected to swim in the Athens meet, according to SwimSwam. It would be the fourth meet of his comeback after he took 20 months off following the 2012 Olympics.

Great Britain track cyclists Jason Kenny and Laura Trott were married on Saturday, according to their social media. Together the couple has won 10 Olympic gold medals, including five at the 2016 Rio Games.
Trott referred to her wedding day as “the happiest day of my life” on Instagram.
“With all my family and close friends I married my best friend,” she wrote. “We had the most amazing day and I’m so pleased to finally be able call Jason my husband.”
The couple’s romance became public at the 2012 Olympics, when they were photographed kissing in the stands behind David Beckham at the women’s beach volleyball finals, according to Sky News. By December 2014, they were engaged. They plan on returning to training after the honeymoon.
Kenny owns seven Olympic medals, including six golds. He has helped Great Britain win team sprint gold medals at every Olympics since 2008.
Trott won gold medals in team pursuit and omnium in Rio, after claiming gold medals in the same events in London. She became the first British woman with four career Olympic gold medals.
Instead of asking for gifts, the couple set up a JustGiving page to raise money for Dementia UK. You can donate here.
