Ryan Lochte’s Rio Incident May Have Been A Cheating Scandal Coverup

It was reported by Oh No They Didn’t! that Ryan Lochte’s lie about being robbed at gunpoint may have stemmed from trying to protect one of the swimmers who cheated on his girlfriend when they partied that night.

In Jack Conger and Gunnar Bentz’s statements to the Rio police, they reportedly said that the lie was to “save the relationship” of one of their own and his girlfriend. It is still unclear as to which swimmer’s relationship needed saving and with whom he cheated on her. However, the police have confirmed that the men were hooking up with women on the night of the incident.

Oh No They Didn’t! additionally reports that Lochte does have a girlfriend and that she stayed in that night at her Rio hotel. The relationship statuses of Conger, Bentz and Jimmy Feigen are still unknown.

As a result of the incident, Lochte has officially been suspended by USA Swimming and the United States Olympic Committee, according to Reuters.

The investigation of the swimmers will continue on American soil.
