Reports: Ryan Lochte suspended from swimming events over Brazil stunt

Sporting officials have handed down a 10-month suspension to swimmer Ryan Lochte over his claims of being robbed in Brazil, which he later admitted were exaggerated, according to several media outlets.

TMZ and USA Today cited unnamed sources close to the investigation who said that a 10-month suspension from events was handed down by the International Olympic Committee, the United States Olympic Committee and USA Swimming.

USOC and USA Swimming couldn’t confirm the suspension to CBS News Wednesday night.

A source told USA Today that Lochte’s suspension is longer than that of the other three U.S. swimmers he was with at the gas station that night.

Lochte will also be banned from the 2017 world championship meet, which will be held in Budapest next July, USA Today reports.
