The U.S. Olympic Committee suspended swimmer Ryan Lochte for 10 months, according to a TMZ report, Wednesday.
The report cited “USOC connected sources” and said the swimmer would face additional sanctions from the International Olympic Committee and USA Swimming.
The reported sanctions stem from the Rio gas station incident involving Lochte and three other U.S. swimmers at the Olympics in Brazil. The other swimmers also received suspensions, according to TMZ, but for less time.
Lochte has also lost several endorsements since the incident.
