More bad news for Ryan Lochte.

Filed under: Ralph LaurenRyan LochteOlympicsControversy

Ryan Lochte

The bad news keeps rolling in for Ryan Lochte.

As we told you, the Olympian was dropped by his longtime sponsor Speedo after all his crazy "tantics" (LOL) in Rio.

Now we're hearing Ralph Lauren has decided NOT to renew it's contract with Lochte in light of his behavior.

Considering we noticed the athlete was no longer on the designer's website, this doesn't come as a huge surprise.

Usain Bolt Smiled & Wagged A Finger At Andre De Grasse After Their 200-Meter Semifinal Photo Finish — But Is The Sprinter Actually PISSED?!

Filed under: ZportzOlympicsHIGHlariousControversyShade

On Wednesday night, Usain Bolt, who owns the world record in the 200 meter, looked to win his semifinal heat for the event and automatically qualify for the finals.

But he ran into a snag when Canada's Andre De Grasse decided to turn up the heat at the end!

As Andre crept up on the legendary Olympian, Usain used everything he had left to stay ahead of the 21-year-old and win with a time of 19.78 — just TWO HUNDREDTHS of a second ahead of De Grasse.

Not only was the finish EPIC, but the Jamaican gave the world a HIGHlarious moment when he turned to the second place runner and gave him a smile and finger wag immediately after crossing the finish — even though both men qualified for the final!

Viewers loved the idea of the seemingly budding bromance, and Bolt even jokingly told NBC and BBC that "De Grasse was supposed to slow down at the end", it seems that's not how he REALLY felt!

Despite the smile on Bolt's face, he apparently wasn't very happy about the last minute kick FOR REAL.

Ryan Lochte Responds To Claims He Lied About Rio Olympics Robbery As The Two Athletes Detained Are Released — Get The Scoop!

no title

Before the Olympics even began, there was a lot of controversy surrounding the health and safety conditions in Rio, and last weekend's story of Ryan Lochte getting held up at gunpoint might be the worst we've heard — if it's true!

Over the weekend, the famed swimmer claimed that he and other Olympic athletes Gunnar Bentz, Jack Conger, and Jimmy Feigen were robbed by men pretending to be cops. Well as you may know, the Brazilian police haven't exactly been overly willing to trust the US swimmer's story.

While the Government wanted to question the 32-year-old, he had already left the country and was back home in the states. However, Brazil was able to detain Bentz and Conger — who have now been released — and questioned them about what went down. A rep for the United States Olympic Committee released a statement in response to the release, saying:
