Lochte and the others were drunk and lied.

Initial reports coming out about no one pointing a gun at them were wrong, so the station owner or someone else there lied.

Brazilian authorities should have let this go, but no. They've got to make it a top story by trying to detain the swimmers.
Lochte should have just shut up, but no, he's got to go all media on this.

It's a joke.

Lol. Don't worry it'll be forgotten soon enough and he'll get enough endorsements to live on.

Great Olympics, but NOT due to the IOC... what a joke of an organization

RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuters) - A bid by Los Angeles to host the 2024 Olympic Games could fall victim to anti-American sentiment brewing inside the International Olympic Committee, sources inside the IOC said.
The bid, which is competing against three European cities, risks an anti-U.S. protest vote by several IOC members angry over America's prominent role in pursuing doping allegations against Russian athletes, the sources said.
The IOC will decide on bids from Los Angeles, Paris, Rome and Budapest in September next year.
At least three non-Russian IOC members, speaking on condition of anonymity, said America's intervention into allegations of systematic Russian doping had marred the run-up to the Rio Games and tarnished the IOC brand.
"Of course the Los Angeles bid will face some consequences from this," an IOC member said.
The U.S. Department of Justice is probing allegations of Russian doping on U.S. soil, and the U.S. anti-doping agency (USADA) called for a total ban on Russians in Rio even as U.S. athletes with a history of positive drugs tests competed there.
None of the IOC members interviewed by Reuters could give an estimate of how many of the IOC's 98 members were thinking along the same lines. Elections for host cities can be decided by a handful of votes and be heavily influenced by politics.

That said, it's now costing Mr. Lochte:

Speedo USA said today that it has decided to terminate its sponsorship of U.S. swimmer Ryan Lochte after he admitted to lying to Rio de Janeiro police about being held up at gunpoint in the city.
"Speedo USA today announces the decision to end its sponsorship of Ryan Lochte. As part of this decision, Speedo USA will donate a $50,000 portion of Lochte's fee to Save the Children, a global charity partner of Speedo USA's parent company, for children in Brazil," the company said in a statement.
"While we have enjoyed a winning relationship with Ryan for over a decade and he has been an important member of the Speedo team, we cannot condone behavior that is counter to the values this brand has long stood for. We appreciate his many achievements and hope he moves forward and learns from this experience," the company added.
Lochte recently admitted that he "overexaggerated" about being held up at gunpoint in Rio while he was there for the Olympics.

Phelps lost sponsors following his 2 DUI's... and it took a while for sponsors to take a bite out of Tiger Woods, following the shot (golf club shot to the head by his wife) heard 'round the world!

But Tiger's not hurting and Phelps has won back his detractors now that he's older and wiser.

I think Lochte can learn and if he gets through some worlds and/or olympic trials with no more incidents, will do ok.
