Michael Phelps Tweets Congratulations to Ryan Lochte

by at . Comments

Well, this is no fun.

Billed as the biggest individual rivalry at the 2012 Summer Olympics, Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte are being all... classy with each other. Don't they know this is a competition?!?

Lochte Wins

Not long after Lochte won the Gold Medal in the 400 IM today, Phelps - who did not finish in the top three in that event for the first time since 2000 - sent a congratulatory Tweet to his countryman, writing:

Congrats to @ryanlochte ... Way to keep that title in the country where it belongs!!

The winner then replied: Thanks @MichaelPhelps I couldn't do it with out you. #USA

Phelps has six more events in front of him and needs two medals to set the all-time Olympic mark. But this race belonged to his rival.

“This is my year,” Lochte said after earning Gold. “I know it and I feel it, because I’ve put in hard work. I’ve trained my butt off for four years … and there’s no better way to start this Olympics off than getting gold.”

Let's try to fire up this feud, shall we? Vote now: Michael Phelps or Ryan Lochte, who would you rather...

There was a black american swimmer on the third lap of 4 x 100 freestyle relay. The anchor was Lochte who lost it for the USA. Everyone else pulled their weight. Arrogance got to him.
