ryan lochteOh my, we loves us some Ryan Lochte! The 27-year-old is a nine-time Olympic medalist who swiped the gold from teammate Michael Phelps for the men's 400-meter race in London -- and did we mention his adorable dimples? Every time Ryan Lochte smiles, all the baby animals in the world coo together in unison.

Take a walk with us through our own little Ryan Lochte portrait gallery. We already showed you his Men's H-h-h-health cover (scroll down below Phelps), his American flag grill, and his theme song. Oh, and you saw this today, right? But there's more -- so much more! Here he is shirtless, suited, from a distance, and in extreme close-up. Enjoy. And, you're welcome.
