Here's a photo of Katie Ledecky, America's youngest gold medalist in London, as a toddler sitting with Michael Jordan at a Washington Wizards game.
It comes via our pal Dan Steinberg at the DC Sports Bog. The picture shows the now-15-year-old swimming star sitting with Jordan and Wizards owner Ted Leonsis at a game sometime prior to Jordan's comeback in 2001.
"Who knew the biggest star in the photo would be the young girl, aged two," Leonsis wrote Monday morning on his blog.
Well, that seems to be a little bit of hyperbole -- Leonsis is pretty famous -- but talking big is a common side effect of Olympic fever.
Ledecky won the 800 freestyle on Friday night and figures to be a key component on U.S. swimming teams for the foreseeable future.
Her uncle Jon (behind her in the photo) is a former partner of Leonsis.
During a Monday interview with Katie on "Today," host Matt Lauer said revealed that Jon was a high school classmate of his and had been texting him over the past year to talk up his niece's swimming exploits.
