American gold medal winner Ryan Lochte may be sweeping up medals at the Rio Games, but when it comes to his do, he’s done, suffering from a very bad hair day.

Things initially got odd when Lochte dyed his hair blue some time before finishing fifth in the men’s 200-meter individual medley final in the Rio Games.

He’s a 12-time medalist, and a fit young guy, to say the least, so he looks great with hair in any color, but the latest verdant color reminds of one a bit of male sea nymph.

While being adventurous with hair color and spirited for big competition, Lochte didn’t account for the chemicals normally used in pools.

4 Olympics straight we've won this relay. So humbled to be apart of this moment! #USA #olympics #relay #gold

Despite a somewhat cosmetic malfunction, Lochte still takes home the gold, even with a forest of green hair atop his unnaturally toned bod.
