Michael Phelps Teaches Katie Ledecky The Art Of Arranging Olympic Medals

It takes skills to make all of that gold look so good.

Katie Ledecky can add how to arrange your absurd amount of Olympic medals to her list of lessons learned from Michael Phelps.

“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.
