GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB) - Former Gator swimmer Ryan Lochte is allowing you to possibly own a piece of Olympic history.

The 12-time Olympic medalist is auctioning off half of his collection - six silver and bronze medals - to benefit a children’s charity.

The sale of the medals will be done in three lots by Boston-based company, RR Auction.
