This is Michael Phelps, the greatest Olympian of all time. You know him, but even if you don’t, it’s right on the name card there.
Here, he probably looks more familiar in a swimming pool.
This is Katie Ledecky, somewhere in this picture behind all the gold medals in the foreground.
You might recognize her as the only person in the swimming pool at Rio.

These Olympics gave been a farewell tour de force for Phelps, who won five golds and a silver in his fifth and final Summer Games.
For Ledecky, it’s been a coming out party — she cleaned up at the podium and her cartoonish margins of victory were a favorite on social media.
So, it’s fun to look at this 10-year-old photo of the two meeting.
