Katie Ledecky won another gold medal on Tuesday night. The Team USA basketball players were there and they were thrilled. Especially Kevin Durant. After the swimming ended, Durant took pictures with Ledecky and Michael Phelps, who also won some gold last night.
Ledecky has come a long way from the kid who looked so thrilled to get her picture taken with Phelps when she was 9. This is what really makes the Olympics great. Everything about these pictures. Kids becoming peers with their heroes. The greatest and most famous athletes in the world becoming fans. All that stuff. It’s just cool.
And here’s the picture of Durant with Phelps.
Notice the background. That’s the face of a man not worried about sacrificing shots.
