Ryan Lochte cleared of criminal charge stemming from Rio Olympics incident

Ryan Lochte cleared of criminal charge stemming from Rio Olympics incident

A Brazilian court has dismissed charges against U.S. swimmer Ryan Lochte, who was facing legal troubles for lying about an incident at a gas station during the 2016 Olympics in Rio.

You may remember that Lochte, 32, was accused of falsely reporting a crime when he claimed that he, along with fellow Olympians Jimmy Feigen, Gunnar Bentz and Jack Conger, were robbed by men pretending to be police officers on their way back to Olympic Village. Rio police and security footage from the gas station where everything went down disputed that story.

"We are pleased that the court has finally dismissed the criminal prosecution against Mr. Lochte, while at the same time, appropriately recognizing that he committed no crime".

Lochte was supposed to return to action this weekend by competing in the Los Angeles Invitational, but he withdrew on Friday, saying he was not in competition shape after the birth of his son, Caiden, last month. Now, Stepanova lives somewhere in the United States, and despite the fact that her own doping ban had expired, she was not allowed to compete in Rio.

As details supporting Lochte's account emerged, he picked up new sponsors and took a spot on Dancing with the Stars last fall.

For the experiment, Phelps wore a Lunocet swim fin, which is expected to give him a competitive edge.

Muguruza defeated Serena in last year's French Open title match and, by adding this victory over Venus, the Spaniard becomes the first player to win a Grand Slam final against each member of the greatest Sister Act in sports. It ended when Williams hit a shot that landed long, but was ruled in.

For a few days in the summer it seemed that you couldn't avoid seeing this guy's picture.

The only damage caused by the swimmers at the gas station was the poster that Lochte knocked off a wall.

Lochte previously returned to non-USA Swimming sanctioned competition and is expected to make a run for a fifth Olympic team in 2020. But Muguruza showed she would not be overwhelmed, returning a serve at 113 mph (182 kph) on the match's second point, and another at 114 mph (184 kph) in the third game - then winning both ensuing exchanges.
