Here's the answer to the question you've always WANTED to ask.  Do Olympic swimmers pee in the pool?

Carly Geehr is a former member of the U.S. national swimming team, and according to her, the answer is . . . YES.  EVERY single elite swimmer pees in the pool.

They rarely do it during races, because they're too focused.  But during warm-ups and practice, they do it all the time.  And they'll do it before a race sometimes too, while they splash water on themselves standing on the pool deck.  Now you know.
