It doesn't look like Rio is getting any safer for Olympians.

Concerns over the security of athletes competing in the Rio Olympics rose once again after it was revealed a member of the Great Britain team was robbed earlier this week.

According to Scott Field, Director of Communications for Team GB, the unnamed athlete was held up "returning to their accommodation" from a night out early Tuesday morning.

This latest incident of theft has prompted officials from the GB track and field team to send an email to athletes on Wednesday warning them about the dangers of nighttime travel in Rio.

The email, obtained by The Guardian, explained that the athlete who was mugged was in "shock" but not hurt — and included a warning that traveling by taxi after dark was not safe and should be avoided, advising team members:

We are so glad Ryan Lochte is OK!

As you remember from yesterday, the Olympic swimming star was held up at gunpoint and robbed on a night out in Rio over the weekend — so scary!

To make matters worse, the US Olympic Committee didn't even bother to check if his story was true before erroneously denying everything, so Lochte didn't exactly have his own people in his corner!

But thankfully, it sounds like the swimmer is now getting on just fine, as he showed off Sunday afternoon in an Instagram post on his account, writing (below):

Olympic Swimming Star Ryan Lochte Was Held Up At Gunpoint In Rio Last Night!

no title

UPDATE, 2:33 p.m. ET: We are learning more about Lochte's close call during the hold-up, and the details are scary!

According to TMZ, Lochte was in a cab with three other swimmers when men dressed as police ordered everybody out and down to the ground. (That's something we've seen before at these Olympics.)

The other swimmers complied, but at first Lochte refused, since he hadn't done anything wrong.

That's when, according to the report, one of the robbers put a gun to Lochte's head (!) and cocked it (!!), and asked for the swimmer's wallet.

WOW.

Lochte obliged, of course, and it appears that the swimmers involved were unharmed. Crazy…

Also, on a more humorous note, there's this (below):

Wow…



This story is scary — or just plain weird.

Ryan Lochte was apparently held up at gunpoint early Sunday morning in Rio De Janeiro, according to the Olympic star's own mother.

He was unharmed, thankfully, but Ileana Lochte told reporters that the star American athlete was on his way to a party with a group of people — including at least one of his US teammates — when they were mugged.
