Ryan Lochte's Mom Says He Was Robbed at Gunpoint in Rio, IOC Disputes Report

Ryan Lochte‘s mother Ileana Lochte said her son and one of his teammates was robbed at gunpoint on Sunday (August 14) during the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

“I think they’re all shaken up. There were a few of them,” Ileana Lochte told USA Today. “No, they were just, they just took their wallets and basically that was it.”

“I’ll be OK when I see him,” Ileana said. She added that Ryan was in a cab when the car stopped for gas. A group then approached the car and took their wallets.

Ryan‘s swim coach David Marsh, however, disputed the report. IOC (International Olympic Committee) spokesman Mark Adams also told the AP that the story is “absolutely not true.”

Ryan Lochte Says He'd 'Be the Michael Phelps of Swimming If He Wasn’t There’

Ryan Lochte sits down for an interview on The Today Show on Friday morning (August 12) on Copacabana Beach in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The 32-year-old swimmer opened up about his disappointing final swim at the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics the night before. While he won a gold medal in the Men’s 4x200m freestyle relay earlier in the week, Ryan didn’t medal in his other event, the 200m individual medley.

In an interview taped before the Olympics, but aired on Thursday night, Ryan opened up about his teammate Michael Phelps. He was asked if he is glad that they are around in the same era.

“Yes and no. My career would definitely be different,” Ryan said. “I guess you would say I’d be like the Michael Phelps of swimming if he wasn’t there. But at the same time I love a challenge, and that’s why I do the events that I do and going up against him is a challenge.”
