Oh the woes of being famous enough to have overzealous fans!

Ryan Lochte, Olympic swimmer and ex-reality show haver, has been injured by an excited fan — and has been hurt enough that he'll be out of the pool for a while!

The 29-year-old gold medalist injured his left knee after a teenage girl saw him and ran at him. That's right, the 6'2" monster of a man couldn't handle a tiny teen!

He caught her, but ended up going down as a result with Ryan hitting the curb below with his knee. The girl is fine… as fine as you can be for almost ending the career of one of your nation's best Olympic swimmers!

Here's what his publicist said:

"As a result of a freak injury caused by an unexpected fan encounter, Ryan has suffered a torn MCL and an ACL sprain and will be taking a break from training and competition."

Bummer!

Take it easy, fans!
