Who else is tired of hearing about Ryan Lochte? We’ve all seen the news about him lying to Matt Lauer on the Today’s Show. How he made immature decisions and he’s sorry for all of the negative attention he’s caused not only to USA but all of the American Olympians. He tells Lauer on national television that he “over exaggerated” what happened that night? blah blah blah….save it Ryan.
Here’s the scoop on Mr. Lochte. He’s an asshole. He’s been in the shadow of Michael Phelps for years. He’s bitter, he’s angry and now he’s made a fool of himself. He so wants to be a more prolific swimmer than Phelps but he never will. I’ve always watched the Olympics and especially swimming. I tune in like everyone else to watch Michael Phelps break a new record. Then the camera pans over to Lochte and just his face screams “angry” and “jealousy”.
I don’t blame Rio one bit. Why let some punk ass ruin publicity in your country when the events were not true? As far as who he was with that night, James Feigen, Jack Conger and Gunnar Bentz, we all know Locate was the main culprit. I know it. You know it. His swimming teammates were just tagging along. Listen, everyone makes mistakes and bad decisions, but you can’t pull shit like this representing the United States of American while you’re in the main spotlight.
I’m pleased that Speedo and Ralph Lauren dropped his ass as sponsors.
(LA Times) “While we enjoyed a winning relationship with Ryan for over a decade and he has been an important member of the Speedo team, we cannot condone behavior that is counter to the values this brand has long stood for. We appreciated his many achievements and hope he moves forward and learns from this experience,” the Speedo statement read.
An Airweave spokeswoman said Monday, “Airweave is a proud sponsor of the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Teams and our dedication to athletic achievement is unwavering. Our endorsement agreement with Ryan Lochte was in support of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. After careful consideration, we have made the decision to end our partnership with Ryan Lochte. We remain committed to supporting Team USA and the athletes preparing for the Paralympic games.”
Fuck him. It’s one thing to make a mistake and own up to it, but it’s another thing to flat out lie about it.
Ryan Locate lives in a Ryan Lochte world. It’s all about him. Let’s dye our hair to stand out and bring attention to ourselves knowing you’ll never surpass Phelps as the greatest swimmer to hit the water. His face makes me sick and he’s got a long road ahead to clear himself of this disaster he’s caused. I bet his book sales will do well huh? More like Hard-Core douche.
