Ryan Lochte admitted to Brazil’s largest broadcaster, Globo TV, that he did exaggerate his story about being robbed at gunpoint in Rio, but the US swimmer insisted he did not lie.
Here is the interview below, where Lochte says:
“I wasn’t lying to a certain extent, I over-exaggerated what was happening to me.”
Lochte also made the media rounds on US TV, speaking with Matt Lauer, and often times holding back tears of ‘regret’ for ‘letting his team down.’
