Lochte told to the media that one of the robbers put a gun to his forehead before taking his wallet. No Olympic medals were lost and all four athletes are safe. “We got pulled over, in the taxi, and these guys came out with a badge, a police badge, no lights, no nothing just a police badge and they pulled us over,” Lochte told. Brazil’s sports minister, Leonardo Picciani, said that the swimmers were “outside their places of competition and outside the appropriate time.” In fact, it was proved that Rio is not the safest place even important security measures were imposed. Since the Olympics began even Portugal’s education minister was robbed at knifepoint.
