Gold medal winner Ryan Lochte’s grill created by rapper Paul Wall

Ever since Ryan Lochte flashed his grill following his win in the 400 m individual medley. I’ve been trying to get more information on my new favorite swimmer. Not only have I discovered that Louche is a pretty fashionable guy, the depths of his “trillness” seems to be pretty authentic.

Lochte is excited he has people talking about his custom made grill. The piece was put together by none other than “The People’s Champ” Paul Wall.

“Everyone’s talking about it … it’s just an incredible thing to be part of. There’s not too many world-class swimmers wearing our grill.”

The grill was hand crafted by Wall “Every diamond is set by hand … one by one, prong set and all custom red rubies.”

The cost of the piece is somewhere between $15K – $25K.  But make no mistake, Lochte cleans up well and bonus, appears to have put some thought into his ink!

Ok, I’m not exactly sure how I feel about the speedos.

But he rocks sparkly sneakers in green, one of my favorite colors, while on the podium. A love of hot footwear, that’s got to be a win, yes?

And apparently we’re both fans of reality TV. Especially Love & Hip-hop Atlanta. That’s Ryan and cast member K. Michelle.
