USOC statement regarding members of the U.S. swimming team

Attributable to Patrick Sandusky, Chief External Affairs Officer, United States Olympic Committee:

“Local police arrived at the Olympic Village this a.m. and asked to meet with Ryan Lochte and James Feigen and collect their passports in order to secure further testimony from the athletes. The swim team moved out of the village after their competition ended, so we were not able to make the athletes available.

Additionally, as part of our standard security protocol, we do not make athlete travel plans public and therefore cannot confirm the athletes’ current location. 

We will continue to cooperate with Brazilian authorities.”
