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.

    I don’t think they even mentioned him during the closing ceremony last night. Not a pic or a peep from anyone.

  • jane

    i’m sure this is just one company of many that’ll dump him. hopefully he’s been saving his cash and not boozing it away

  • tom

    Give him a break,he still a winer

  • Ause Ekel

    Dubmass, his other sponsors should do the same. Giving money to a 32 years old liar is unacceptable.

  • Dan Berjac

    He is should move to France because the country is almost as crazy as here (politically speaking anyway). He should hire the people trying to manage Trump to help him out. I can not help but ask, why did Ryan do that? He had so much going for him.

    You must not be a champion (and especially an Olympic one) only at the pool (field of your work) but also OUTSIDE it… in life as well. Which is equally (if not more) important. This is sad.

  • @Salina Bujosa

    There were actually some news outlets that labeled him a kid! The man is in his early 30s and the news media are trying to cover for him. Awful.

  • Liana kar

    Good for them.Some people,because they’re famous,think they can do whatever they want and nobody is gonna catch them.
