The rise and fall of swimmer Klete Keller, who won gold for Team USA but faces sentencing

It was a little after 3:30pm by the time Klete Keller stepped on to the subway in Washington DC. The sun had not yet set but already darkness enveloped the nation's capital. He was soon approached by a young boy. The child had spotted Keller's jacket, which carried all the bells and whistles of the USA Olympic team. The boy asked Keller if he was really an athlete. He wanted to know about the former swimmer's career, which between 2000 and 2008 took the 6ft 6ins Keller to three Games. He won five medals including two golds, with a teammate claiming his anchor leg in the 4x200m freestyle at Athens 2004 - when Keller held off the great Ian Thorpe - cemented his place as 'an American hero'. No wonder the child asked for a picture. Before long, however, Keller had thrown the jacket in the garbage. He took a hammer to his cell phone, too. Because earlier that afternoon, on January 6 2021, the Olympian had made 'one of the worst decisions of my life.'
