Brazilian judge says in her ruling there were inconsistencies in the swimmers' testimony. - From USA TODAY
Rio 2016 and the International Olympic Committee did not address the case when asked about it at a news conference Wednesday.
"Contradictions in the testimonies given by the supposed victims have been identified, in which in one of the testimonies, the victim Ryan Steve Lochte affirms that the athletes, up until now denominated as victims, had been approached by only one armed person who demanded the turning over all of the money in his possession, or, $400 USD, while in another testimony, the supposed victim James Ernst Feigen, affirms that they were approached by some armed people, unable to give a precise number how many carried out the crime, affirming that only one of the persons had a firearm.
Another apparent contradiction is in the time of their exit from the event on the Lagoon and the arrival of the supposed victims at the Olympic Village.
(which is not confirmed by the images at the location, which indicated a different time) and affirm that the crime happened when they were in the neighborhood of Barra da Tijuca, in the proximities of the Olympic Village, having after the fact gone onward to their lodgings.
However, the registry of the entrance of the supposed victims is at 6:56 a.m., as noted on the security cameras at the location, which captured their arrival and what can be deduced from seeing the images on the Olympic Village security cameras is that the supposed victims arrived with their physical and psychological integrity unshaken, even making jokes with each other, denoting that there was not any psychological disturbance inherent to the supposed violence they allege.
