Lochte is Golden!

Former Gator swimmer Ryan Lochte won his first individual gold medal by setting a World Record in the 200 meter backstroke in the Olympic Games in Beijing. Lochte bested long time backstroke nemesis Aaron Piersall to win his fifth Olympic Medal overall.

Lochte is the first Gator men's swimmer to ever win an individual Gold Medal swimming for the United States. We'll have more later.
