Watching a race between Olympic superstars Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte will, without a doubt, leave you sitting on the edge of your seat. The duo are known for their intense rivalry in the pool- at the U.S. Nationals this past week, Lochte beat out Phelps for the gold medal in the 200 individual medley. However, it became clear in the post-race interviews that the rivalry ends in the pool. Since meeting at the Olympic Trials in 2004, the two have grown to be very close friends. Michael and Ryan send daily text messages to each other, have silly inside jokes (they greet each other by saying “jeah”), and share a love for rap music.
Another similarity that we noticed between the two: they are both very nice to look at.
Tell us: would you and your BFF be interested in a double date with Michael & Ryan?
