The pair re-created a 10-year-old photo with a major twist.

Michael Phelps and Katie Ledecky celebrate at the Olympic swimming trials in July. She once stood in line to get an autograph from the swimmer, and now they've swapped places.

Remember that adorable photo of 9-year-old swimmer Katie Ledecky getting Olympian Michael Phelps’ signature?

Yeah, that’s the one.

Well, fast-forward 10 years and it looks like the tables have turned and now Ledecky’s the one handing out autographs.

We can’t say we’re surprised the two switched roles for the new photo. After all, Ledecky has racked up her fair share of Olympic gold medals and broke her own world record for the 800-meter freestyle. 

Watch out, Phelps. Ledecky is coming for your medal record.
