Ryan Lochte took home the first American gold medal of the London 2012 Olympics, but his choice of accessories bothered officials. Lochte says his patriotic mouthpiece nearly cost him his gold medal. USA today reported that Lochte was told he wouldn't receive his medal if he wore the grill on the podium on Saturday. So instead, Lochte put the grill on after he got his gold for the 400-meter individual medley. Ryan wore a stars-and-stripes, jewel-encrusted 'grill' across his top row of teeth.
Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte will be competing next week at the U.S. Olympic trials. Both are set to compete in seven swimming events, including six against each other. The two have an impressive list of accolades, Phelps won a monumental eight gold medals in Beijing and Lochte is a six-time Olympic medalist. Lochte is seeded No. 1, ahead of Phelps, in four events: the 200 and 400 I.M.; the 200 freestyle and the 200 backstroke. Phelps is seeded first in the 100 and 200 butterfly.
