These poor, poor coaches…

Two wrestling coaches with the Mongolian national team literally ripped off their clothing in protest of a bad call during an Olympic match that ended up handing the bronze medal to Uzbekistan's Ikhtiyor Navruzov on Sunday.

Navruzov had been wrestling against Mongolia's Mandakhnaran Ganzorig, and with about seven seconds left in the match, the Mongolian wrestler started celebrating after what he felt was a very clear win for the bronze.

Only… the judges didn't see it that way.

Officials decided to penalize Ganzorig for what they felt was fleeing and not engaging in those final seconds, a decision which made the score 7-7. After the Mongolians protested the call, and lost, Navruzov was given another point, and in turn, the bronze.

Byambarenchin Bayarra and another Mongolian coach went crazy in response, stripping off their clothing and yelling at the judges, eventually getting all the way down to their underwear and refusing to leave the mat.

The moment quickly went viral, with all kinds of tweets and reaction to it occurring in real time this afternoon (below):

Oh, Ryan Lochte

The American swimmer opened up to NBC's Matt Lauer last night in an exclusive interview, and it sure seemed like the Olympic star was sad… but not completely apologetic?!

Called out on his lies, Lochte backtracked, but never full on groveled — despite Lauer staying right on him with some tough questions.

Ch-ch-check out a snippet of last night's interview (above), in which Lochte discusses his self-proclaimed "immature" behavior in Rio when he reported an armed robbery despite never actually being robbed.

Lauer also called out Lochte about straight up lying to Billy Bush and to Lauer himself, and the TV host sounds none too pleased about that.

He's baa-aack…

Of course, the Olympic swimmer is struggling after a controversial week centered around being caught in a lie over a supposed armed robbery down in Rio — and now, he's paying the price in any number of ways.

As his own teammates waffle about what he's all about, though, there's no question Lochte is part happy to be home, and part nervous about what lies ahead.
