For many Olympic athletes, their competitions are over and party time has arrived.

British rower Mark Hunter was quoted as saying "it's time to have fun and socialize."

London's Metro paper said U.S. swimmer Ryan Lochte caused a commotion when he appeared at the city's Chinawhite nightclub, long a favorite haunt of young royals. The headline said it all: "Lochte's tally: It's gold, silver ...and blonde."
