Gold Medalist Olympian Stands Up for Individual Style

Maybe grills are not exactly gothic, even if Marilyn Manson has rocked one. But you have to be able to relate to gold medalist Ryan Lochte taking a stand for his individual style at the 2012 Olympics. Reportedly, an Olympic official told him he could not receive his gold medal if he wore his grill. Famous jeweler Paul Wall of Grills by Paul Wall made champion swimmer Ryan Lochte an American flag grill. So Ryan Lochte waited until he had his medal in hand before popping the gemstone-studded grill in his mouth and giving the world his red, white, and blue victory smile. If you have ever had someone tell you not to wear what you felt was appropriate, and odds are good that has happened to you if you are reading this site, then you can probably relate.
