I love swimmers in general. Don’t mistake that I don’t applaud Michael Phelps for his accomplishments, breaking an Olympic record with his total medal count of 22 and his 8 for 8 in Beijing in 2008.
Yet somehow,I have this big crush on Ryan Lochte and for him to take the first gold for London Summer Olympics 2012 just made him hotter in my eyes.
I’m sure that endorsement deals will be coming his way (if they haven’t already) and will be able to help his mom avoid foreclosure on their house.
I featured him on one of my blogs back in 2008. I’m going to feature him again just for the fun of it….
