American swimming superstar and Olympic hero Katie Ledecky threw out a great opening pitch at the Washington Nationals game Wednesday night.

Ledecky won five medals, four of which were gold, in the 2016 summer Olympics in Rio, Brazil. She handed her medals over to Nationals star Bryce Harper to hold as she took the mound. (SLIDESHOW: This Nearly Naked Model Is All The Motivation You Need For The Olympics)

The 19-year old phenom fired a pitch straight to the catcher and the crowd went nuts. (RELATED: Brazil Attempted To Hold American Swimmer Hostage For Almost $50,000)


With Michael Phelps’s retirement from swimming it appears that Ledecky is the new face of Team USA, and that’s a good thing.
