It’s November and it’s like 15 degrees outside. And – news flash – the Steelers suck so football is kind of dead to me. Obviously, what I need is the next best thing…swimming news! What – you didn’t see that coming? Well, there are some people out there who just can’t get enough Ryan Lochte. They are going to be a little disappointed about what’s going on in his world.
According to Lochte’s publicist:
As a result of a freak injury caused by an unexpected fan encounter Ryan has suffered a torn MCL and an ACL sprain and will be taking a break from training and competition. His medical team expects him to make a full and speedy recovery and Ryan thanks everyone for their well wishes.
What’s this mysterious freak injury, you ask? Well, get this. Apparently, some lovestruck teenage fan ran into him on the street and tried to jump up into his arms. He tried to catch her, being the gentleman that he is, and they both fell to the ground. Lochte’s knee hit the curb and he got the worst of it.
*sigh* Ladies, I know you love you some Lochte, but seriously? You simply cannot just run and jump into a man’s arms, especially one you don’t know and, especially, one who is a celebrity, with no prior warning. Don’t they teach this in celebrity stalking school or something? Amateur move, really.
But, fear not, Lochte-lovers. He’s only 29 and he will heal. It’s not clear how long the injury will sideline him (can I say that about a swimmer?), but, hey, it’s only 2013. He’s got three years to get those abs and those pecs and, well, all the rest of him, into shape for the 2016 Olympics. I can’t wait.
