Ryan Lochte Lands Swimsuit Endorsement Deal With Tyr Sport
U.S. swimmer Ryan Lochte has a swimsuit sponsor again, as Tyr Sport today will announce it has signed the embattled star to an endorsement contract. This comes five months after competitor Speedo cut ties with Lochte amid the Rio gas station scandal. Terms are not known, but the deal will last through the '20 Tokyo Games, which Lochte’s agent, Jeff Ostrow of ProPlayer Sports LLC, called his “one more chance to do this.” Lochte is currently serving a USOC/USA Swimming suspension for the incident in Brazil, with hopes of making his return at the U.S. Open swim meet Aug. 2-6. Tyr renewed its sponsorship of USA Swimming earlier this week.
