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.
