The bad news for American ladies: Lochte is very attached to this woman. The good news: It's his sister, not a fan looking to cash in on Ryan's dating strategy.
As Buzzfeed points out, the woman sitting on Lochte's lap is his 31-year-old sister, Megan Lochte Torrini. It was an embarrassing discovery for some sites -- SportsGrid, for instance, had linked Mrs. Torrini and her showy shirt to the swimming star after pictures were released on them goofing around in the backseat of a car with some friends.
Sometimes a girl sitting on the lap of America's most eligible bachelor is there because there's no room in the car, not because she's an aspiring model looking for a career break.
