“Dancing With the Stars” alum Ryan Lochte’s 10-month suspension has finally been lifted, and the professional swimmer just confirmed his participation in the 2020 Olympics.

On his Instagram account, Lochte posted a short video teasing his return to the prestigious sports event in three years. He also used the hashtag “just let me work” and said that his upcoming performance will be dedicated to his son, Caiden. Lochte also posted a video of himself jumping off a dive board via the same social media account.

According to Entertainment Tonight, Lochte and three other professional swimmers were suspended after they fabricated a story about being robbed at gunpoint following an incident at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. As a result of his deed, Lochte was suspended from the domestic and international USA swimming national team. He was also ordered to complete 20 hours of community service. His monthly stipend and $100,000 bonus check were also suspended.

Last month, Lochte spoke with ESPN to talk about what it was like losing everything due to one huge mistake. “After Rio, I was probably the most hated person in the world. There were a couple of points where I was crying, thinking, ‘If I go to bed and never wake up, fine.’ I was about to hang up my entire life,” he said.

When Lochte participated in “Dancing With the Stars” last year, he also received negative treatment following one of his routines. After his performance with pro dancer Cheryl Burke, Lochte and Burke were listening to the comments of the judges when protesters rushed towards him and attacked him. Luckily, the staff of the show was able to respond quickly and prevent any altercations.

A spokesperson for the company that produces “Dancing With the Stars” told CNN in September 2016, “Two individuals stormed the dance floor tonight and were immediately subdued and escorted out of the building.”

The two men, Barzeen Soroudi and Sam Sotoodeh were arrested on grounds of trespassing. A spokesperson for the LAPD told the same publication, “This was a private person’s arrest as the security at the venue made the arrest. We just accepted them and booked them.”
