US swimmers Gunnar Bentz and Jack Conger have been stopped from boarding a flight by Brazilian police looking into claims they were robbed in Rio.
Both guys were taken off an US-bound plane and taken in for police questioning.
He declared on to some inaccuracies in his original account of being robbed at gunpoint in the early hours of Sunday, but vehemently denied making up the story.
“I wouldn’t make up a story like this nor would the others – as a matter of fact we all feel it makes us look bad,” he told US TV network NBC.
The three swimmers continuing in Brazil are expected to speak to investigators on Thursday.
Lochte is among the most successful swimmers ever, with 12 Olympic medals, and he once had his own reality television show in the US. In Rio, he swam in two events, winning gold in the 4x200m freestyle relay race.
Feigen, who told the San Antonio Express he was still in Brazil, won gold in the 4x100m freestyle relay race.
Bentz competed in the 4x200m preliminaries, but not the final. He still received a gold medal after the US team’s win.
