Ryan Lochte better hang on to his Dancing With the Stars gig for dear life!

As we previously reported, the U.S. Olympic Committee officially suspended Ryan for 10 months on Wednesday. The punishment — which some members of the committee felt was too harsh — was handed down about a month after Lochte lied about a robbery in Rio.
