Sports Illustrated’s cover calls Ledecky, Phelps, Biles ‘The Greatests’

This week’s cover of Sports Illustrated appropriately calls Katie Ledecky, Michael Phelps and Simone Biles “THE GREATESTS.”

It’s extra-appropriate considering the likes of Ledecky and Biles have completely dominated their competition in Rio while appearing to receive less attention than Phelps.

  • Phelps: 5 golds, 1 silver
  • Ledecky: 4 golds, 1 silver
  • Biles: 3 golds, 1 bronze (still one event to go)

Phelps got a silver medal over the weekend and he still stole the primary newspaper headline – even though Ledecky had smashed a world record en route to a gold medal.
