Last Friday Ryan Lochte finished his morning workout early and headed to Penn State to see the football game.

According to the myfoxphilly.com, the 11-time Olympic medalist was seen at several local restaurants, but it was his stop at the Inferno Brick Oven  that left employees shocked.

The Ohio State matchup slammed local restaurants with business, but the Inferno Brick seated Lochte’s party of ten quickly.  According to restaurant employee, Kristen Arcangelo, Lochte was low-key and very, very nice. On a $425 tab, Lochte showed his thanks with a $400 tip.

Lochte’s known for his generosity, tirelessly supporting charities. Tipping well can now be added to Lochte’s profile.

Lochte’s back in action at the “International Swimmeeting South Tyrol” in Bolzano, Italy, November 8th and 9th (along with Team USA stars Natalie Coughlin, Adam Mania, Cullen Jones, and Amanda Weir).

He gave me tips, talked to me like a normal person, and every day through the grand prix when he would walk by where me and my coach were sitting he would give me a hand shake to say hi. (it may have been cause of who else was usually with us but I… Read more »
