American swimming star Ryan Lochte turns 28 on Friday. He already knows he's getting a great gift -- the day off.

After winning five medals at the London Games, Lochte's work in the Olympic pool is complete for 2012. So for his birthday, he'll get to spend the day with his family.

"I think it's the first time in years where I get to celebrate it and I don't have to swim," Lochte says. "So I'm definitely happy for that."

Lochte didn't reveal any big birthday plans, other than just hanging out.

"We'll probably just walk around and just be a family," Lochte says.

Lochte plans to see plenty of Olympic events now that his schedule is open. On his wish list: Seeing Usain Bolt run on the track and watching the U.S. basketball team play.
