Katie Ledecky’s neck must hurt from wearing all her Olympic medals.
The Olympic swimmer was the guest of honor at the Washington Nationals baseball game on Wednesday, and what better way to honor her than to have her throw out the first pitch?
Throwing the first pitch served no problem for Ledecky, but the only issue was that her medals kept getting in the way! Those darn things. So, the only viable option she had was to have major league MVP, Bryce Harper, babysit them while she threw the baseball.
If it weren’t for Harper doing the admiral task of hanging on to the precious gold and silver, Ledecky probably wouldn’t have been able to throw a strike. I take that back — she probably could have thrown a strike while wearing the medals since she’s a boss.
