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.

one post was enough…

He’s a good looking guy, but the mouth grill makes him look like a douche-bag. There is nothing so embarrassing as a white boy trying to look like he’s some big man from the ‘hood, especially when he’s clearly so NOT.

# 5

I think its silly and funnny

Ryan’s American Flag Grill is AWESOME! I hope he gets to wear it at 6 more Gold Medal Ceremonies.

# 7

He’s cute but he also looks really aged, especially considering the fact that he’s only 27. He should take better care of his skin.

# 8

He just won USA a gold medal. Jeez these guys can’t even get a break and have some fun. Represent!

# 9

He looks a lot better on video. These pics aren’t flattering

That’s his personality. Stop being a social snob.

love how athletes are let of for being d-bags.. or getting high orrr being caught with drugs but saying its for menstrual cramps.. yeah effing right!! it ruins the sport for me.

YAAAS HONEY!!! @ 07/29/2012 at 12:04 am

I’m sorry. I read 27-year-old… Surely you meant 40-year-old?

Very corny and tacky.

@lola: true!!!! and weren’t grillz a 2003 thing?

He’s HOT!!

His grill is disrespectful to the flag. The US Flag Code says “The flag should never be used as wearing apparel.” Basically, if you aren’t displaying the flag on a flagpole, you’re probably disrespecting it.

Douchebag, you’re an Olympic champion, not street thug.

@Jennica Panettiere: It’s my right to dislike his personality, without being called ‘social snob’.

First of all, he’s also a model…signed with a major agency, so whoever said he doesn’t take care of his skin is a moron. 2nd, there’s flags all over everything in this world. Who cares what the flags says? Seriously? There’s a million other things this country “says” that are absurd and no one listens, but now you want to point out something just to be controversial. Anyone can be an Olympic champion or athlete. People with all different personalities, likes, dislikes and fashions. It doesn’t make him a “thug”, but thanks for the small-minded stereotype. We don’t all have to be the same to represent this country, I think our population shows that. And whoever said they don’t like sports because athletes get high or get off – I don’t even know what that means by they get off? What should we do, hang them? And isolated incidents ruin sports on the overall for you? Wow, that’s sad that you’d let those things ruin all sports for you.

American hillbilly…..what else is new?
