Olympic Swimmer Flashes a Diamond Studded Smile

  By CHELNA KHATAU   Aug 2nd 2012 at 12:07PM Jewellery RATED

If you thought only hip-hop stars and Bappi Lahiri liked bling, you thought wrong. American swimmer Ryan Lochte, who bagged a gold for the men's 400-meter individual medley at the London Olympics 2012 on Saturday, is diamond-crazy.

The nine-time Olympic medalist, who has dreams of being a fashion designer (ummm, seriously?) flashed a $25,000 dental grill as he posed with his equally shiny medal. Said grill looks like the American flag and was apparently designed for him by rapper Paul Wall and a jeweller to the hip-hop stars called TV Johnny.

This of course, has set of a Grills or No Grills debate in the US. But we're hardly surprised with this show of flash. You should expect this fashion statement from a man who owns 130 pairs of shoes. Jeah!
