Olympic Swimmer Conor Dwyer Weighs in on Ryan Lochte Drama | E! Live from the Red Carpet

When I am sad about the Olympics I remember Maya DiRado’s exuberant happiness after winning gold today and feel better. And then I remember Aly Raisman coming back in incredible fashion to win silver and the tears if brought to my eyes. And then I remember Simone Biles absolutely crushing the competition and seeing the tears in her eyes. And then I remember Simone Manuel and everything her gold medal means to the world, and how incredibly surprised and ecstatic she was. And then I remember that the Olympics are filled with beauty and heart break but the one thing that remains constant is the effort these athletes have put in to get there. And then I think, wow, all of these people working toward different goals and coming together to celebrate how far they have come after such long roads. And then I cry a little bit because it’s just so beautiful.
