Swimmer Ryan Lochte Suspended Until July 2019

Ryan Lochte has been banned from competition until July 2019. He didn't take a banned substance though. Instead he got an intravenous injection of vitamins in May, and that method is typically banned under anti-doping rules. Ryan Lochte said he took the IV because both his wife and his son were sick and he didn't want to get sick too. He didn't hide it and according to him the IV contained mostly B-complex vitamins that could be purchased at any pharmacy. The issue was the amount. It exceeded 100 milliliters. So that means the 12-time Olympic medalist cannot compete as planned in the national championships that start this week in California. Ryan Lochte will also be ineligible for the Pan Pacific Championships later this year and next year’s world championships. Ryan Lochte said, “A rule is a rule and I accept that there is a technical violation. I am hopeful that other athletes learn from my mistake.”
