Ryan Lochte: American Flag Grill at London Olympic Games!
Ryan Lochte proudly shows off his American Flag Grill and his Gold Medal during the Medal Ceremony for the Men’s 400m Individual Medley on Day 1 of the 2012 Summer Olympics at the Aquatics Centre on Saturday (July 28) in London, England.
The 27-year-old swimmer is famous for wearing grills on his teeth at medal ceremonies, but we are loving his American pride at the Olympic Games!
“Yes, I am wearing one in London, and I wear them because they are different and fun. That’s my personality,” Ryan told USA Today.
While Ryan still showed off the grill at the games, he wasn’t allowed to wear it during the medal ceremony.
“Lochte told me he tried to wear his grill on the podium only to have an Olympics official tell him if he did so he wouldn’t get his gold,” an ESPN reporter tweeted.
