Life is good for Olympic heart throb Ryan Lochte.

The swimmer celebrated the end of an impressive London games - five medals, two of them gold - and his 28th birthday with night out at Chinawhite nightclub.

Lochte partied until nearly 3:30 a.m. before piling into a taxi with friends and various female acquaintances for the ride back to the Olympic Village.

Clearly, it's good to be an Olympic champion ...

That's what we call an impressive medley, or something.

No word if Lochte, whose mother recently said that he does not have time for girlfriends and has "one night stands" instead, had one or more on this night.

In any case, be sure to browse our gallery of Olympic photos for more shots of the hunk ... our favorite being this shot of Ryan Lochte and Missy Franklin.

American swimming sensation Ryan Lochte has taken London by storm, but today, he has even more to celebrate than his five Olympic medals.

It's his 28th birthday!

"It feels amazing," he said of his Olympics performance this morning. "I'm happy that it's over. Today is my birthday, and I'm relaxing... This is the first time in 12 years that I can celebrate my birthday and not swim."

Yes, 12 years. Think these guys are committed?

Lochte also played down his mother's recent comments about her son's lack of dating commitment and crack that "he goes out on one-night stands."

Ryan insists his mom just misspoke there.

"She meant I go on a lot of dates and don't have time for a long-term relationship ... She didn't mean anything negative. She's new to the whole media thing."

As for the time in which he is ready to settle down, what are Ryan's qualifications for his dream girl? "She has to be fit and can make me laugh."

Take note, ladies. And click to enlarge more Ryan Lochte photos, many of which feature him shirtless! You're welcome. So very welcome.

America's swimming sweethearts, Ryan Lochte and Missy Franklin, are making news not only for their amazing performances at the London Aquatic Centre, but for this adorable photo posted on Twitter last night.

Ryan, 28, and Missy, 17, are already fan favorites, and this will only reinforce that. Here are the gold medal-winners sharing a "good luck" moment before they set out to make Americans proud - and make more Olympic history - Thursday:

While Ryan Lochte has long been overshadowed by Michael Phelps, he's become a star in his own right in London. As for Missy ... does anyone not love her?

Exactly. The only question: What's your reaction to this pic?

After teaming up for a pair of medal-winning relay swims this week, Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte squared off today in the 200-meter individual medley final.

The Americans were co-favorites, with Phelps having owned the event in the last two Olympics, but Lochte annihilating the field in the 400-meter IM this year.

Not surprisingly, one took gold and one silver today ... but who won?

Michael Phelps! The most-decorated Olympian ever took home the gold in 1:54.27, just 0.27 off the world record and 0.04 off the Olympic record.

Ryan Lochte won the silver medal, 0.63 back.

Hungary's Laszlo Cseh fell away through three legs but earned the bronze. Brazil's Thiago Pereira was actually second after the breaststroke leg.

The medal was Phelps' 16th gold and record 20th overall, while Lochte reached double digits in career medals, earning #10 with the silver.

He probably won't hear from President Obama this time, but Michael Phelps' mom was definitely psyched as he continues to cement his legacy

Way to go, both of you guys! U-S-A! U-S-A!

Olympic swimming champ and certified shirtless hunk Ryan Lochte doesn't have time for relationships, just one-night stands ... according to his mom.

In an interview with Today, Ike Lochte explained why her son is too busy to commit to women, and the answer is simple: It's all about swimming.

"He goes out on one-night stands," she said of her 27-year-old son. "He's not able to give fully to a relationship because he's always on the go."

At Procter and Gamble's "Thank You Mom" family home in London five days earlier, Ike further explained why Ryan Lochte isn't ready to date seriously.

"He's so warmhearted that I don't think he'd want to have a relationship with somebody," she said. "I don't think he wants to get into a relationship."

"It just wouldn't be fair to the girl," she said. "He doesn't have time."

Single or otherwise, mom couldn't be prouder of the nine-time Olympic medalist, who has been linked (falsely) to K. Michelle and Blair Evans of late.

"Everything he has done in his life has been to the max ... he's unique, loving, and he challenges himself all the time."

Ryan Lochte and K. Michelle are not two people we ever expected we'd be posting dating rumors about, but here you go, with the supposed evidence:

Lochte is a hip-hop fan who rocks that sick grill, so it's not that surprising he'd be an acquaintance of a cast member on VH1's Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta.

Here's Ryan Lochte and K. Michelle at the NBA All-Star game together:

Whether or not they've ever hooked up or are hooking up - Ryan Lochte's girlfriend Blair Evans may have something to say about that - they clearly hang out.

There are also shots of them partying together on other occasions, and throughout the Olympics, K. Michelle has been Tweeting about her "Pooh."

Yes, her Pooh, who has (mostly) been kicking ass ...

Are they actually dating? Or just friends? Friends with benefits?

Who can say, but Lochte continues to be all the Olympic rage.

Ryan may have a long way to go to match Michael Phelps' career medal haul, but he's right on his tail in terms of celebrity gossip attention.

It's the number-one question being asked at this year's Olympics.

How many times will NBC cameras find Kate Middleton in the crowd? No, that's not it.

Does Ryan Lochte have a girlfriend?

Following his Gold Medal-winning performance in the 400 Individual Medley (which was followed by Lochte getting outkicked on the anchor lap of his team's relay yesterday), the athlete has positioned himself as the American face of these London Games.

And women around the country are yearning to know: is anyone out there sucking that face?

The answer appears to be a strong... maybe. According to The Brisbane Times, Lochte and Australian swimmer Blair Evans were spotted getting awfully chummy during training last week. They reportedly touched hands under the water and left together for the Olympic village.

And we all know what goes down in the Olympic Village, right, Hope Solo?!?

We'll stay on the story of whether or not anyone is staying on (or under) this 28-year old star, but in the meantime, we've posted a photo of that famous Ryan Lochte grill. Ogle away, ladies!

Ryan Lochte has officially made it.

Not because this 28-year old American defeated Michael Phelps yesterday in the 400 Individual Medley, but because he's the subject of a new "Call Me Maybe" parody, which focuses on the rivalry between these two Olympic swimmers and whose lyrics include:

Strange pecs, taking bong hits/Stay smooth, shave your armpits/Where you think you're swimming, Mikey?

Hey, I'm not Michael, don't eat at Subway/But this is my year, so call me Lochte/It's hard to swim right, by Phelps baby/But this is my year, so call me Lochte.

Earlier in the week, another video went viral in which Lochte and Phelps joined members of the swim team in lip syncing to Carly Rae Jepsen's smash hit.

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...
