Six-time Olympic gold medalist Ryan Lochte has been suspended for 14 months for an anti-doping violation after he received an intravenous infusion, the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency announced Monday. While USADA said Lochte was not using a banned substance, athletes can typically only receive IVs as part of hospital treatment or through an exemption.In 2016, Lochte was banned from swimming for 10 months after he claimed that he and three other U.S. swimmers were robbed after a night of revelry during the Rio Games.
