Ryan Lochte cannot compete again until July 2019.

After getting an intravenous injection and posting a photo on Instagram, Ryan Lochte was slapped with a 14-month suspension by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency.

While his punishment is not for a banned substance, the American swimmer admitted the mistake was ‘devastating’.

“This is devastating for my family and me, and I was finally back in top shape. I was ready to return to the national team and represent the US at the Pan Pacific Games this summer and World Championships of next year,” Lochte said.

See what else Lochte had to say regarding his suspension in the video below.
