Ryan Lochte Injured After Being Tackled by Fan
What’s the opposite of “Jeah”?
Ryan Lochte is about to find out, as the Olympic swimmer just suffered a major setback after a fan encounter gone wrong.
“USA Today” reports that the athlete-turned-reality star has a torn MCL and sprained ACL in his left knee after an incident Sunday.
After a fan ran after Lochte, he “caught the girl, but the two toppled over in the process.”
“As a result of a freak injury caused by an unexpected fan encounter, Ryan… will be taking a break from training and competition,” his publicist’s statement reads (via “USA Today”). “His medical team expects him to make a full and speedy recovery and Ryan thanks everyone for their well wishes.”
After winning five Olympics in London last year, Lochte starred in an E! reality series, “What Would Ryan Lochte Do?,” which was cancelled after one season.
Ryan hasn’t yet responded on Twitter, but follow him @ryanlochte for the latest.
