Olympic gold medal winning swimmer Klete Keller was allegedly among the Trump supporters who stormed the Capitol last week. Video from the riot appears to show the 38-year-old wearing his Team USA jacket.
Keller won medals at the 2000, 2004, and 2008 Summer Olympics in the 400-meter freestyle and the 4×200-meter freestyle relay.
An Olympic gold medalist, the swimmer Klete Keller, was part of the pro-Trump mob that sieged the Capitol, former teammates and coaches who identified him said. If confirmed by the authorities, he may face federal charges. https://t.co/srEIG09vRP

If it's proven that Keller was part of the rioters who stormed the Capitol he can kiss those medals goodbye. It would be really hard to argue for him to keep them after participating in such an event, although I believe O.J. is still in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
