Ryan Lochte Lands Endorsement Deal for Portable Security Alarm ROBOCOPP
This is the second deal the Olympic swimmer has signed following his Rio scandal.
Just one week after losing endorsement deals with Speedo, Ralph Lauren and other high-profile companies following his heavily investigated scandal in Rio de Janeiro, Ryan Lochte is busy getting back into the sponsorship business.
The Olympic swimmer has partnered with ROBOCOPP, a company that manufactures personal and portable security alarms.
This marks the second sponsorship Lochte has landed since coming under public scrutiny for fabricating a story about being robbed at gunpoint during the Rio Olympics. He also recently scored a deal as a spokesperson for Pine Bros. cough drops and joined the lineup of Dancing With the Stars' 23rd season.
In a video advertisement posted to his Instagram, Lochte shows his followers how to use a ROBOCOPP device.
"I've been traveling a lot lately. We all like to have fun, but it's a good idea to stay safe," he says. "I don't go anywhere without Robocopp. All you do is pull the pin and it releases a startling alarm that can get you out of a bad situation."
