Swimming is essentially done at the 2012 London Olympics. However, the swimmers are still there. And no, they’re not catching up on sleep. They’re boozin’ and clubbin’ with the enthusiasm you’d expect from world champions.
The Daily Mail has an exhaustive report of Team USA’s shenanigans, which includes one Michael Phelps hitting the town with three of his gold medals.
The 6-foot-4 swimming superstar and his 4×100 meter relay teammates celebrated their victory at the exclusive House of St. Barnabas-in-Soho, until Phelps and his leggy friend slipped out to a waiting SUV at around 4 a.m.
They kept the party going by smuggling two open bottles of Stella Artois into their ride.
Having a “leggy friend” never hurt anyone.
Stella was an interestingly modest choice. Most athletes are famous for their jaw-dropping bar tabs while celebrating major victories. Certainly a smart move for a just-retired 27-year old professional. According to the Post, Phelps couldn’t help awaking at 6am despite his busy night. A true swimmer, he is, to the core.
As for Lochte, he reportedly had a fun night of his own, also with some American teammates.
(Note: The Daily Mail has photos of him with Mat Grevers and Nathan Adrian, two of Phelps’ 4×100 teammates, both of whom the Post said was partying with Phelps).
Lochte was partying at The Last Lap at Chinawhite, where he was reportedly drinking £500 bottles of Patron Tequilla and magnums of Belvedere vodka and had a group of women hanging around him.
Sounds just like Lochte to me. Not a simple Stella Man like Phelps, apparently.
But he certainly seemed at ease with the two women in the taxi who could be seen touching him and sitting on his lap. At one point, the women seemed to be hugging him at the same time, while Jones looked on.
But it was not only Lochte who was a hit with the ladies. Michael Phelps, who announced his retirement after winning his 18 gold medals, reportedly left House of St. Barnabas-in-Soho with a leggy blonde in the early hours of Sunday morning.
Poor Cullen Jones, a star in his own right, forced to look on while America’s strongest vagina-magnet, Lochte, snatched up everything in sight.
Oh, but there’s more! By day, Tyler Clary swims for gold medals. By night, he’s droppin’ beats on the 1s and 2s.
For one gold medal winner, however, the work was not yet over. Tyler Clary took to the decks for four hours as the headline act from 11pm until 3am.
There’s a reason these guys cleaned up at the Olympics. Multitalented wonders. ‘MURICA.
