0

Ryan Lochte is still struggling with the fallout from his false claims of a robbery during the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

The professional swimmer, 35, discusses the headline-making incident on Alex Rodriguez‘s new CNBC show, Back in the Game. The four-episode series follows the former MLB player mentoring and giving advice to athletes and entertainers who have fallen from grace in their respective careers.

In an exclusive clip from the upcoming one-on-one interview, Lochte gets emotional as he opens up about the situation, which saw him receive a 10-month suspension from the sport after being charged with falsely communicating a crime.

“One mistake changed my entire life,” he tells Rodriguez, 44. “I went from hero to zero. I’m just trying to fight my way back to the top again.”
