Ryan Lochte contemplated suicide after his Rio Summer Olympics scandal in August 2016, the 12-time medalist told ESPN in an interview published on Tuesday, June 6.
“There were a couple of points where I was crying, thinking, ‘If I go to bed and never wake up, fine,’” Lochte, 32, told ESPN’s Allison Glock. “I was about to hang up my entire life.”
As previously reported, the swimmer was suspended from competing for 10 months and lost millions of dollars worth of sponsors after he embellished claims that he and three teammates were robbed at gunpoint in Rio last summer.

When pushed on whether she’s heard the racial slur from Maher, specifically, she smiled and said: “I don’t want to say from where, but I’ve heard it many times.”
