Ryan Lochte Apologizes For Rio Robbery Lie--Read His Statement
August 19, 2016
ICYMI (while hopefully lying out on a beach somewhere away from all this nonsense), Ryan Lochte claimed he was robbed in Rio with a bunch of his teammates on Sunday night, August 14.
There was a lot of drama surrounding this story as no one could get their facts straight. The USA and International Olympic Committees got involved, as well as the Rio police. Turns out, the 32-year-old swimmer kind of lied about the whole thing…
Yeah, this drunken frat boy night is overshadowing major accomplishments, like Team USA’s Ashton Eaton winning his second Olympic decathlon and the first medals sweep ever for the American track and field women.
Anyway, here’s Lochte’s apology for his actions:
