Ryan Lochte Razors: Olympian Gifted With Gillette Gold-Plated, Diamond-Encrusted Shavers (PHOTO)

Posted: Updated:

Ryan Lochte has won two gold medals, but the swimmer's favorite take-home from the 2012 Olympics might be a pair of razors.

Lochte was gifted with two razors -- one gold-plated and the other diamond-encrusted -- from Gillette, a sponsor of the 28-year-old.

The swimmer tweeted a photo of the extravagant razors to his followers:

Gillette also had a special message for Lochte:

Lochte's new blinging razors might be a little over-the-top, but the Florida native has never been known for his subtlety.

He debuted his new American flag grill, which he had specially made for the 2012 Olympics, on the podium when he accepted his first gold metal for the 400-meter Individual Medley. The red, white and blue grill, made by rapper Paul Wall, set Lochte back $25,000.

"For those who don't know what a grill is, it's basically a retainer filled with diamonds," Lochte said in a June 2011 interview. "I wear it when I go on the podium. It's just a unique way of showing personality out to everyone."

When designing a sneaker for his own limited edition Speedo footwear collection, he decided to go with neon green and yellow high tops fully encrusted with emerald green rhinestones. Also, his idol is Lil' Wayne, he has a soft spot for outrageous belt buckles and he knows his way around an animal print.

So, jeah, we're thinking those new Gillette razors will fit right in.
