Lochte a shark in dating pool

Posted: August 03, 2012

RYAN LOCHTE went out in style Thursday, winning a silver medal in the 200-meter individual medley and a bronze in the 200 backstroke.

Overall, he finished with two golds, two silvers and a bronze and said he was "pretty satisfied."

What next?

Well the Rio de Janeiro Games aren't until 2016, so Lochte will have some time on his hands.

Maybe he can work on his love life.

In a recent interview, Ryan's mother, Ike, meant to say her son devotes so much to swimming that he has difficulty cultivating long-term relationships.

Instead, she said, "He goes out on one-night stands."

Way to go mom!

That said, Lochte isn't shy about what he looks for in a woman.

In an interview with Women's Health magazine, Lochte said he likes his females to have a "fit body."

When asked what he thought looked sexy on a woman he said "One of my long-sleeve button-down shirts and that's all."

Yikes, this guy is an amphibious snake.

But wait, there's more.

Lochte told the magazine that he sleeps in the nude and he likes to have sex with the lights on.

And how, one wonders, does he lure women into his well-lit lair.

"[I] make eye contact. Some guys keep staring, but I'll give a wink and come back later, because it keeps her thinking."

Um, I already ate

LeBron James only had six points in the United States' 56-point win over Nigeria on Thursday.

But at least he scored.

That wasn't the case a few nights ago when he was reportedly rebuffed by U.S. swimmer Lauren Perdue when he asked her to dinner.

"He was kind of joking but he was basically like, ‘Would you like to come eat with me at the dining hall?', said Perdue a member of the U.S. women's swim team. “And I said, ‘Um, I'm sorry, I have a curfew. So I turned that one down, yeah."
