2016 Rio de Janeiro Summer Olympics Incident

Lochte was on top of the world -- one of the most decorated athletes of all time, a 12-time Olympic medalist, and a world record holder when it all came crashing down.  

In the incident -- now widely known as "Lochtegate" -- Lochte alleged that he and four other teammates had been robbed by armed assailants. In his account, Lochte alleged that one person had a gun cocked to his head. 

Upon investigation by the Rio de Janeiro authorities, it was revealed that Lochte had vastly exaggerated the incident and filed a false police report. Coupled with the Rio authorities' own embellishments, portraying Lochte and company as vandals, the Lochte faced huge public backlash.   

He was vilified by the media and shunned by the USA Swimming, who suspended him from swimming. Lochte also lost major sponsors like Speedo USA, Ralph Lauren Corp, Syneron Candela, and Airweave in light of the public blunder.  

Lochte was once again in hot waters in 2018 when United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) banned Lochte from performing for 14 months after an alleged "prohibited intravenous infusion".
