The United States Olympic Committee has released a statement on the four swimmers who were reportedly robbed on Sunday.
“The three U.S. Olympic swimmers(Gunnar Bentz, Jack Conger and Jimmy Feigen) are cooperating with authorities and in the process of scheduling a time and place today to provide further statements to the Brazilian authorities. All are represented by counsel and being appropriately supported by the USOC and the U.S. Consulate in Rio,” per the release.
Bentz and Conger had their passports seized Wednesday night and were pulled off their plane. Feigen’s passport was seized earlier in the day. The fourth swimmer, Ryan Lochte, has already left Brazil and is back in the United States.
Earlier on Thursday, it was reported that the four were involved in a gas station fight. One of the swimmers reportedly broke down a door in the gas station.
