"We apologize to our hosts in Rio and the people of Brazil for this distracting ordeal in the midst of what should rightly be a celebration of excellence." -The U.S. Olympic Committee said, after Brazilian police's stunning contention that American Ryan Lochte and three other swimmers had not been held at gunpoint and robbed after a night of partying, as he claimed.
