Ryan Lochte Dropped By Speedo Over His Behavior in Rio

Ryan Lochte has been dropped by Speedo, one of his sponsors, following his behavior in Rio.

“While we have enjoyed a winning relationship with Ryan for over a decade and he has been an important member of the Speedo team, we cannot condone behavior that is counter to the values this brand has long stood for,” the company said in a statement (via TMZ). “We appreciate his many achievements and hope he moves forward and learns from this experience.”

Speedo will be donating $50,000 to Save the Children and the charity will use the money to support the children in Brazil.

UPDATE: Ralph Lauren announced the brand will not renew its deal with the swimmer.
