Ryan Lochte is officially ready for Rio.

The swimmer debuted a brand-new hairstyle on Sunday as he prepared to head to the 2016 Olympic Games in Brazil.

“New look…. Here We Go #Rio#2016 thanks @jennjonesatl #turnup#lightblue,” Lochte wrote, showing off his more-silver-fox-than-light-blue hair on Instagram on Sunday.

Ahead of his big color reveal, Lochte teased his new look, sharing a photo of himself in full peroxide-mode in his hairstylist Jenn Jones’ chair.

Lochte, 31, has a big week ahead of him. He is expected to arrive in Rio this week ahead of the Opening Ceremony, which will take place on Friday. After that, the swimming schedule kicks off with men’s and women’s heats beginning on Saturday.

(Hopefully Lochte’s swimming cap will be enough to protect his newly bleached hair from the chlorine.)

And if the new ice-blue hair is working for you (and you are still harboring your 2012 Olympics crush for Lochte) take note — the athlete revealed last week that he is currently trying his luck on Tinder.

“I’ve been matching up with a bunch of gorgeous women who are smart, they have professional jobs and everything,” he said in an interview. “I’m like, ‘Wow, this is perfect.’ So I’ve been on Tinder lately. So far I haven’t had any dates or anything. I’ve just been talking with a couple [women].”

Watch out for the next blue-haired guy you swipe left on, he might just be an Olympian.
