I betcha Ryan Lochte sure is regretting being the boy who cried wolf in Rio!
Just to refresh your memory, the decorated swimmer represented the U.S. in #Rio2016 where he fabricated a story about being robbed at gun point by men with police badges.
Following the scandal, Lochte has been dropped by FOUR of his sponsors. But that’s not the only consequence!
U.S. Olympic officials announced today that Ryan Lochte will be suspended for 10 months from all international and domestic swimming competitions.
This means that the 32 year old, 12 time medalist, will not be competing in the 2017 national championships and therefore ineligible to compete in the 2017 FINA World Championships.
Oh, also he will be expected to do community service. He will not be attending Team USA’s visit to the White House this fall. Lochte will also not be receiving any money from Team USA during his suspension.
Hopefully he makes some money for his appearance on Dancing With The Stars next season.
