Ryan Lochte has become a transcendent figure in the Olympic world. He is a four-time Olympian (Athens, Beijing, London, Rio de Janeiro) and a 12-time Olympic medalist (including six Gold, three Silver, and three Bronze). His seven individual Olympic medals are second all-time in Men's Swimming, and he is the current world record holder in the 200 individual medley. Ryan has been named both American and World Swimmer of the Year twice in his career (2010 and 2011) and has a total of 70 medals in major international competition, including 45 first place finishes.
As a Florida Gator, Ryan was a two-time NCAA Swimmer of the Year, 24-time NCAA All-American, and seven-time NCAA Champion. Lochte's accomplishments in the pool along with his committed fan base (1 million+ Twitter and Instagram followers and over 658k Facebook fans) have helped him gain pop culture status outside the pool.
