The Wall Street Journal: Ryan Lochte apologizes for his behavior in Brazil

RIO DE JANEIRO — U.S. Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte apologized for his behavior in Brazil, following his disputed claim that he was robbed at gunpoint while on a night out with three teammates.

Lochte’s statement, posted on Instagram, followed an apology to the games’ organizers and the people of Brazil by the U.S. Olympic Committee on Thursday night.

“I want to apologize for my behavior last weekend—for not being more careful and candid in how I described the events of that early morning and for my role in taking the focus away from the many athletes fulfilling their dreams of participating in the Olympics,” Lochte wrote.
