Just in case you missed the hilarious moment, U.S. swimmer Ryan Lochte stood atop the Olympic podium dawning a one of a kind all-American grill.

Yes, his mouth was glistening with a bedazzled American flag thanks to a custom creation from rapper Paul Wall and business partner Johnny Dang.

“For him to represent us and our culture, the grill culture, it’s just shining a light on hip-hop in the Olympics,” Wall told

“Everyone’s talking about it … it’s just an incredible thing to be part of. I’m just honored to be part of it. There’s not too many world-class swimmers wearing our grill.”

Word is that Lochte was told he would risk not receiving his medal if he put it on, but he was smart and waited until it was in hand to pop it in his mouth.

The grill contains diamonds and red rubies, valued between $15,000 and $25,000.

Lochte has also been linked to reality star K. Michelle. Although, Michelle claims the two are just close friends.
