Ryan Lochte is no doubt of the best athletes competing in this year's London Olympics -- from the duel in the pool stories surrounding him and his teammate Michael Phelps... to scoring the USA's first gold medal of the year in the 400-meter individual medley -- and even a rumored romance with Australian swimmer Blair Evans -- there isn't an hour that goes by without the world hearing about Lochte.
Now, despite all of his success London, one of the biggest questions on everyone's mind is -- what the heck is in his mouth!
Ryan Lochte is known to rock a grill in his mouth as one of his signature trademarks -- and he had a custom-made sparkling American flag mouthpiece made just for the 2012 Olympics.
As for why he wears it... well, let Ryan explain for himself... take a look:
Now, Lochte reportedly wanted to wear the diamond grill while accepting his first gold medal of this year's games -- but according to USA Today, a USA swimming representative said he was banned from doing so!
An ESPN reporter confirmed the news when he tweeted out QUOTE "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."
Now, if the whole grill thing wasn't enough to make you think Ryan has quite the personality... then his biggest fear just might do the trick -- ladies prepare to swoon.
Lochte recently told d ESPN.com that he's most afraid of being a bad father one day. He doesn't have any kids quite yet but he said QUOTE "I just have this fear of not being there to be a part of my child's life... And I don't want to miss anything."
Aside from gold medals, Ryan has a lot more to celebrate -- he turns 28 next week!
