Five-time gold medalist Ryan Lochte recently tore his MCL and sprained his ACL during an encounter with a fan in Gainesville, Fla. According to Janice Lee, Lochte’s publicist, a teenage girl ran at Lochte, who tried to catch her, but the two fell over in the process. Lochte hit his knee on a curb. The girl was not hurt. His medical staff expects Lochte to make a full recovery.
We have imagined a slightly different version of the events that lead to his injury.
