Ryan Lochte took the gold medal is the 400 IM on Saturday. Where was Michael Phelps . . . um well he didn’t even medal. Lochte beat Phelps by more than 4.10 seconds which is like an eternity in swimming. Phelps had said he was going to retire from the 400 IM after winning it in his past two Olympic appearances and he probably should have to stuck to that. Phelps needs just three more medals to tie Larisa Latynina for most Olympic medals won.
Although I love seeing athletes make records . . . I love me some Lochte. This was the first gold medal for the USA.
