Ryan Lochte, the 11-time Olympic medalist, has had a whirlwind post Olympic run, appearing on countless talk shows, acting on TV shows such as 90210 and 30 Rock, but he is not dating Miss Universe, Olivia Culpoaccording the New York Post’s Page 6.

Culpo denied the rumors Friday when contacted by the Post’s celebrity column. Cuplo just won the Miss Universe crown last month and explained to Maria Menounos, host of Extra, that there was a lot of talk, all rumors, that she was seeing Lochte.

“Rumors are rumors. At the end of the day we’re just friends, and I’m happy with that.” Culpo said.

Culpo claims she’s single, which, for marketing reasons, is important for the Miss Universe crown winner.

Lochte recently returned from the 2012 FINA Short Course World Championships, where he performed well, bringing his SC Worlds career medal haul to 16 golds.

During the Culpo denial, Lochte was between Satellite Beach and Cocoa Beach in Florida with Coach Gregg Troy and the Florida Gators working the dry-side of their training with the Elite Special Forces at the Patrick Air Force Base.

      Is this a “pretty boy” swimmer thing? The last 2 Brazilian Girls who went for Miss Universe (2010/2011) were dated by Cielo..

    Between the two of them, their IQ might add up to 100. But since Miss Universe said “we’re just friends” maybe her IQ is higher than I first thought.

    If I recall correctly they were rumored to be “dating” during NFW back in Sept but she denied it then, and he showed up to GGs with some questionable looking girl as a date. So ahh not much of a relationship.

    It’s non of our Business anyway …. don’t u all think ? Ryan doesn’t know who i date , right ? Why should i know who he dates ?

    Why not Ryan has a little latin blood too. I think its great that swimmers get the good looking girls myself.

  7. BillyGumdrop says:

    Ryan is dumb like a fox. He’ll probably end up very wealthy from his celebrity adventures.

    If those clowns from Jersey Shore all can become millionaires, Ryan can to. At least he’s accomplished one heck of a lot more.

    I find him funny.

    P.S. He’s drowning in hot chicks to have fun with too.
