“You’ll learn, don’t worry about it,” the most decorated Olympian of all time told Ledecky during a recent photo shoot for the cover of Sports Illustrated.
After making it look easy in the pool in Rio, Ledecky accepted a little assistance organizing the five new medals — four gold and one silver — she racked up.
“It’s a pretty crazy feeling to look back and think that I looked up to him, and to be a part of two Olympic teams with him has meant a lot,” Ledecky said.
Gymnastics superstar Simone Biles was also on hand to round out the “stars of a Red Hot American Summer.”
It looks like the shoot turned out pretty well.
