Ryan Lochte, gold medal winning U.S swimmer, recently received diamond encrusted razors in one of the most extravagant gifts of the year. Lochte, a media darling throughout the London 2012 Olympic Games, has been no stranger to the limelight and getting himself some media exposure.
One of the biggest media fascinations with Lochte is his diamond encrusted “grill” that he wore alongside his medals as part of his personal style. No doubt the inspiration behind Gillette’s gift, these “grills” definitely gave Lochte a leg up in the media department and he became one of the most celebrated American athletes throughout the games.
Lochte’s final tally for the 2012 Olympics includes two golds, two silvers and one bronze medal. His gift from Gillette was tweeted out from his Twitter account.
