Remember him? He made up that story in Brazil about being robbed during the Oly Games.

In any event, if this is true, this is even dumber than his fabricated story!

Swimmer Ryan Lochte Suspended 14 Months for Doping Violation Involving IV Use

Six-time Olympic gold medallist Ryan Lochte was suspended by the United States Anti-Doping Agency for 14 months for receiving an illegal intravenous infusion in May.

Per USADA, the American swimmer will be banned until next July after breaking anti-doping rules around athletes not being able to receive IVs unless given an exemption or if they are hospitalised.

Lochte, 33, did not take any banned substances but contravened rules about the use of IVs in quantities over 100 millilitres, according to USADA's statement.

An investigation was prompted in May when Lochte posted an image on social media that showed him receiving the treatment.

Ryan Lochte at a press conference now: "I wasn't taking anything illegal. Everything was legal. You can get it at CVS, Walgreens, but there are rules, and you have to obey them. ... Don't worry. I'm not giving up. I'm going to keep going [to Tokyo 2020]."

The ban was backdated to May 24, so the key events Lochte will miss will be the Pan Pacific Championships in August and the 2019 World Championships.

That is stupid. You go see your doctor. He says you need a shot. So you first have to call WADA? lol lol ...
I can see if you are going to take that at least once a month for a long period. But a one time shot? How about let the doctor do his job, then inform WADA you've taken a shot of x and Y ???

@ Ace2Ace:
 
Yes, he's not in a life-threatening situation.
Plus, why is the girl also hooked up to the IV?

I think he'd been doing it so long, he forgot it was illegal. Plus, was perhaps so excited to have an 'instagrammable' image, he forgot to think it thru. Followers LOVE seeing stars in so-called intimate, private scenarios, particularly medical because it makes them 'relatable.'

It's like emailing/texting the wrong person. Oops!

Lol. Well, that might be true because Vesnina said it was common for ordinary Russians to take it. From her statement I'm convinced she too was on it but escaped notice.

We are not at all critical about Sharapova, which is a bit ridiculous because the thing she took in Russia takes every child, because it's not doping, it's just vitamins, so the Russians do not talk badly about them because it was just a mistake, even though I do not know who made the mistake.

Vesnina wrote:
It was a mistake from her, which does not mean she took it deliberately to achieve something.This drug is nothing serious, old people take it in Russia and in the former Soviet Union countries but I think it was very strange that so many players were against her, they said she was a bad person, so that's not all the Russians knew what happened, so we were behind Maria, and we did not want to bring these things to the press as other players did

Yep, WADA said they'd secretly tested athletes during the prior year after being tipped off, and discovered that many Russian tennis players were taking it.
