Ryan Lochte on Rio Robbery Scandal: 'Everyone Has Got to Be Sick & Tired' Of Hearing About It

Ryan Lochte sits down with Amy Robach during an interview with Good Morning America to announce himself as a contestant on Dancing with the Stars and discuss his Rio robbery story on Tuesday (August 30) in New York City.

The 32-year-old swimmer says he signed on for Dancing with the Stars before the Rio controversy took place.

“I take full responsibility. I’m human. I made a mistake. A very big mistake. It’s something that I learned from and I know that will never happen again,” Ryan said. “I’m never one to dwell on the past. I just want to move forward. Everyone has got to be sick and tired about hearing about this. I just want to move forward.”

Ryan also talked about his decision to stick with competing on DWTS despite the huge scandal.

Ryan will be paired with Cheryl Burke for DWTS this season.
