Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte is known for his speed but what about is green hair?

Lochte recently dyed his hair a bright blond, almost white, color before the Rio games started. Recently he posted pictures posing with his teammates and it might be the Instagram filter he used,  but it kind of looks like his locks are turning green.

For those wondering why Lochte’s locks would randomly turn green … it might not be random at all.

According to TODAY’s website, blond swimmers have to be careful when jumping into pools with high levels of chlorine and copper. The combination could affect their hair color. 

The only question now is whether or not Lochte’s locks actually turned green or if it’s just a play of the lights.
