Based in his up and down performance in the London Olympics and some comments from him and his mom, many suspect that Ryan Lochte started celebrating his Gold medals while he was in London. But now the Olympics are over and as you can see from the photos above Ryan Lochte is in full party mode.

Lochte is obviously having a blast with a bunch of bikini babes at Maxim Fridays at TAO Beach. The night before he partied the night away at Worship Thursday at TAO.

The guy definitely deserves to enjoy himself. He busted his ass preparing for the Olympics and came away with two gold medals. He’s not quite in the Michael Phelps league, but he’s one of the best swimmers in the world.

Ryan Lochte wins gold in 400 IM; Phelps finishes fourth

Unless you watched it online, you’ll have to wait until the NBC tape delay tonight to watch it. Ryan Lochte won the Olympic 400-meter individual medley by more than 3 seconds and Michael Phelps finished a disappointing fourth. Phelps won the gold in this event four years ago with a world record time that still stands. Based on that you have to wonder if all the reports about Phelps not training hard enough might be true. He’s not the same swimmer this time around.

Still Golden: Phelps Wins Sixth in 200 IM

Another day, another gold medal, and another world-record swim for Michael Phelps.

He dominated from the starter’s gun to the final touch, as Phelps captured his sixth gold medal in Beijing by winning 200-meter individual medley race with a time of 1:54.23. He also set his sixth world record by breaking the old mark of 1:54.80 which he set last month at the U.S. trials.

Ryan Lochte had only a 29-minute rest between the 200-meter backstroke and 200 IM, and it showed. He could not keep up with Phelps’ pace and had to settle for the bronze medal. Lochte’s consolation prize was a world record and his first career individual gold medal in the backstroke. He edged American teammate Aaron Peirsol with a time of 1:53.94 to break the world mark they shared together.

Next up for Phelps is the 100-meter butterfly finals on Friday evening and if all goes according to plan, the record-breaker will come on Saturday evening in the 400-meter relay, a race that the Americans are heavily favored to win.
