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.
