QUICK SAVVY MOVE
Ryan Lochte is sponsored by Gatorade, and he apparently takes that seriously.
So when he sat down at a news conference Thursday night after his competitions at the London Olympics were over, Lochte started by adjusting the dais a bit.
Lochte quickly moved a bottle of Coca-Cola under the table, then swept a nearby bottle of Powerade far enough away that it wouldn't be in any camera shots. Gatorade, see, is a PepsiCo product. Coca-Cola is an official Olympic sponsor.
