Ryan Lochte Addresses His 10-Month Suspension: “It’s Heartbreaking and It Stinks”


The Olympic swimmer appears on The Ellen DeGeneres Show next Monday where he’ll candidly discuss his 10-month suspension from swimming after lying to authorities and the media about being held at gunpoint in Rio. USA Swimming and the United States Olympic Committee also banned the 32-year-old athlete from the 2017 National Championship, which prevents him from qualifying for the FINA World Championships next July in Budapest.

“You know, I’ve been swimming my entire life and I’ve never taken a break, and for someone telling me that I can’t do something I’ve been doing my entire life…it’s heartbreaking and it stinks,” he tells host Ellen DeGeneres.
