Amid the turmoil engulfing Ryan Lochte and three other US swimmers over their mugging story, Rio organisers on August 18, 2016 gave them words of sympathy. "Let's give these kids a break," said Rio 2016 chief spokesman Mario Andrada, who had earlier given a full apology for the supposed ordeal they had gone through in a gunpoint robbery. The story has unravelled in a police investigation with reports of Lochte, Jack Conger, Gunnar Bentz and James Feigen in a fight at a Rio gas station.
