Lochte first announced in December that he was going to be a father.
The Rio gas station incident has left Lochte on suspension until June 30th, making him ineligible to compete at the upcoming U.S. World Trials. Despite his absence at Trials and by virtue the World Championships, we could easily see him back in competition later in the summer, say at the U.S. Open in early August.
Since Rio his lone competition has been Masters Nationals at the end of April, where he picked up four individual wins in the 100/200 IM and 50/100 back.
