RIO DE JANEIRO — Concerns over the security of Olympic athletes in Rio surfaced again after it emerged that a member of the Great Britain team had been robbed earlier this week.
“We can confirm there has been an incident of theft involving a Team GB athlete returning to their accommodation,” Scott Field, Director of Communications for Team GB, told USA TODAY Sports.
The unnamed athlete was held up on the way back from a night out in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
As the controversy and confusion surrounding Ryan Lochte and three other American swimmers, who also said they were held up by robbers, continued to swirl, The Guardian reported that Britain’s competitors had been warned not to leave the Olympic Village
