Al Roker Reading Ryan Lochte, “He Liieed!”.

Anchors Natalie Morales, Billy Bush and Al Roker sat down on the Today Show, on NBC to discuss Ryan Lochte‘s story about the alleged armed robbery that he was said to have experienced with other USA Olympians as the reality was that he was caught vandalising & publicly urinating at a gas station in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The other Olympic swimmers were Jack Conger, Jimmy Feigen and Gunnar Bentz. Details from the statements of Mr. Bentz can be found here from the New York Times.


Al Roker, who supports small farmers, buying lamb from Border Spring Farms and writes mystery novels (with Dick Lochte) about their hero, Billy Blessing (chef turned detective) has been on television since 1974!

Ryan Lochte is the famed Olympic swimmer & 12 x Olympic medalist, whom has won 6 gold, three silver & three bronze. Let’s hope that this controversy will not permanently tarnish his reputation or take away from his achievements.

Lochte offered this apology via Instagram:

“I want to apologize for my behavior last weekend — for not being more careful and candid in how I described the events of that early morning,”, “It’s traumatic to be out late with your friends in a foreign country — with a language barrier — and have a stranger point a gun at you and demand money to let you leave,”…grateful to “the people of Brazil who welcomed us to Rio and worked so hard to make sure that these Olympic Games provided a lifetime of great new memories.”

Interesting story to say the least!
