Ryan Lochte: Freestyle Qualifier!
Ryan Lochte keeps making us proud – he qualified for the 200 meter freestyle race at the 2012 Summer Olympics during the preliminary round on Sunday (July 29) at the Aquatics Centre in London, England.
The 27-year-old swimming star earned the USA’s first gold medal of the 2012 Games yesterday in the 400 meter individual medley race!
Ryan came in second in the qualifying round, finishing after China’s Sun Yang. He doesn’t sound too worried, though – “I didn’t get to bed until like 2 a.m. so I’m a little tired, but it was a prelims swim, so I’m not too worried about it,” he told a CBS reporter.
