U.S. swimmer Jack Conger apologizes, details ‘frightening experience’

Conger said in a news release that he “deeply” regretted the “trouble and embarrassment this event has brought to the people of Brazil and Rio de Janeiro, and the distraction it has caused from the achievements of my fellow Olympians.” The gold medalist said he had been “completely truthful,” and gave his account of the event, saying that Lochte apparently drew the attention of an employee after removing a poster.

“This has been an unsettling, humbling and frightening experience,” Conger said the release. “It’s a reminder that all of us, when we travel and especially when we represent the US in the Olympics, are ambassadors for our country and should be on our best behavior.”
