Ryan Lochte’s Suspension is Over, Says He’s Ready for Olympics 2020
You guys remember when Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte was suspended for 10 months fro the USA Swimming national team after he and three swimmers fabricated a story about being robbed at gunpoint during the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil?
Well, as a result he was suspended from the team. That suspension is now complete and Ryan says he’s ready to compete again — but is the public on his side this time around?
“It’s been a long suspension but it’s over, I’ve learned and became a better man from it…. now let’s go #2020 #teamtyr #2020isforyoucaiden #justletmework,” Lochte wrote on Instagram.
Ryan has since had a baby with fiancee Kayla Rae Reid and opened up about his suicidal thoughts he experienced following the scandal.
“After Rio, I was probably the most hated person in the world,” he told ESPN. “There were a couple of points where I was crying, thinking, ‘If I go to bed and never wake up, fine. I was about to hang up my entire life.”
