The Ryan Lochte dating rumours are spinning again - and this time they're focused on a beauty who's as patriotic as he is! The Olympic medalist was spotted with reigning Miss USA hottie, Olivia Culpo, at an event during New York Fashion Week. The duo, who attended the Evening Sherri Hill Spring 2013 fashion show, posed for pictures with Miss USA owner Donald Trump. According to the Daily News, Trump told the beauty queen, 'He’s got lots of medals, just like you!' E! Online reports that the gorgeous pair continued their evening at New York hotspot 1Oak where they were seen sitting and chatting at a table until 1:00 in the morning. The 20-year-old beauty and 28-year-old Olympian reportedly met at shoe desginer Brian Atwood's party at the Four Season's restaurant last Wednesday. While Lochte's rep says it's too early to say they're officially dating, she does explain, "They get along well and they’ve been to a couple events." Culpo revealed yesterday, "We just met last week, so I can’t say anything for that, but he’s a good guy." The two-time Olympic gold medalist (he also won two silvers and one bronze medal in London!) is hot property in the Hollywood circuit right now, with cameo appearances on a number of hit TV shows set to air in the fall and a clothing line that he is poised to start working on in the near future.
