Ryan Lochte's 95-Year-Old Grandma Just Proved She's His Biggest Fan

She deserves a gold medal for creating her own torch. 🏅🏅🏅

Ryan Lochte’s grandmother is clearly his biggest fan.

On Aug. 8, the Olympic swimmer posted a video of his 95-year-old grandma carrying a homemade Olympic torch (that seemed to be made out of cardboard and paper) around her nursing home.

“Representing #USA,” he wrote in the tweet.

Despite not being in Rio, she found the perfect way to cheer on her grandson.
