Katie Ledecky Makes Man Hold Her Medals While She Throws Out First Pitch

Katie Ledecky uses man as medal rack.

Katie Ledecky, our Olympic hero, was one of the many women who dominated in Rio, breaking her own world records in the women’s 800-meter and 400-meter freestyle events, and becoming just the second woman in history to win three gold medals in individual freestyle events at one Olympic Games.

She also won a gold in the women’s 4x200-meter freestyle relay and a silver in the women’s 4x100-meter relay, bringing her total medal count to five: something Washington Nationals player Bryce Harper was painfully aware of as he watched Ledecky throw the first pitch at Nationals Park Wednesday night.

It took her a full 30 seconds to remove the medals, and then to fire a perfect pitch into catcher Shawn Kelley’s glove. Meanwhile, Harper stood next to her imitating a medal rack. Because what are men if not muscles to hold your hard-won trophies?
