Written by FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailABC News(NEW YORK) — After four Olympics, 12 medals and another four years of training, Ryan Lochte will have to wait a bit longer to jump back into the swimming pool after the International Olympic Committee announced the 2020 Tokyo Summer Games have been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.But the six-time gold medalist said this is bigger than any of the athletes and they will adjust their training and be ready to compete when the time comes. “Training will never be perfect, and there’s always going to be something like a bump in the road, and that’s how us athletes train, and this is just another bump in the road,” Lochte told ABC News’ Good Morning America via Skype from his home in Florida on Wednesday.“The Olympics are not canceled. They’re just postponed. So now you have to adjust your training for another year, and just — trust the process,” he continued. “Everything happens for a reason.”The games, which were originally set to kick off in Tokyo on July 24, “will be held by the summer of 2021,” Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe announced Tuesday. “As soon as I saw it I was disappointed. I mean, I have trained four years for this moment, and this is probably one of my biggest Olympics — that I have ever had in my career,” Lochte said. “But this is bigger than me, this is bigger than the Olympians. This is affecting the entire world. And right now our main thing is staying safe and staying healthy.” Until the COVID-19 crisis is resolved, Lochte, 36, said he is spending lots of time “deep cleaning the house,” adding more dry land training to his routine and enjoying time with his family during this stay-at-home period.“We’re going on family walks, and since all the pools are closed, I can’t be swimming right now, but I’m doing a lot of ab workouts and stuff like that,” he said. The IOC said the historic first-time move to postpone the games was made to safeguard the health of the athletes, everybody involved in the Olympic Games and the international community.

Guevarra added he advised Cuneta that the identity of the person who posted an offending message to Frankie and his location should be clearly established first before she could file a complaint. “I. WILL. FIND. YOU. YOU FACE ME, YOU COWARD. DUWAG. TANDAAN MO KUNG SINO AKO. NANAY NI KC, FRANKIE, MIEL, AT MIGUEL. YOU CROSSED THE LINE,” Cuneta wrote on her social media accounts. Alcos, commenting on the statements of Frankie in a Facebook page, said that “pasalamat ka iha, kung ang edad ko ay 12 yrs. magtago ka na sa tatay mong senador Kiko matsing dahil hahanapin kita para gahasain. Tapos sisihin mo tatay mo dahil hindi ako makukulong.”/PN MANILA – The Department of Justice (DOJ) is set to verify the identity of the person who threatened to rape the daughter of Sen. Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan, Frankie. DOJ secretary Menardo Guevarra said Frankie’s mother, award-winning actress Sharon Cuneta, have reached out to him over the weekend and is determined to file a criminal complaint against the person. Cuneta went ballistic at social media over the weekend as she defended her daughter against a certain Sonny Alcos, who supposedly said that he would find Frankie and rape her. “GOD HELP ME AND THE LAW! GOD HELP YOU WHEN I FIND YOU. HINDI KITA PATATAHIMIKIN. TANDAAN MO ITO: AKO AY ANAK NI PABLO P. CUNETA. MALI ANG BINANGGA MO, DEMONYO KA,” she added. “[But] it appears that Sharon, through her own efforts, has identified the person concerned, including his location and the name and address of his employer,” Guevarra said. Frankie has been vocal against “rape culture,” saying a person’s attire is not an invitation to rape. She even had an argument with TV and radio personality Ben Tulfo for her stand. “Should Ms. Cuneta proceed to file a criminal complaint with the DOJ, we shall verify the respondent’s identity and address for the purpose of giving him notice,” the Justice secretary added.
