Olympic gold medalist swimmer Klete Keller was sentenced to six months of home detention and three years probation for his involvement in the Jan. 6, 2021 Capitol riot.

Keller pleaded guilty to a felony charge and faced potential jail time, acknowledging his attempts to obstruct the certification of President Biden’s victory and his disruptive behavior at the Capitol.

He was identified through a viral video, his driver’s license, and his distinctive U.S. Olympic team jacket. (Trending: Greta Thunberg Caught on Video Going Full Anti-Semite)

“I have no excuse for why I am in front of you today,” he said in court. “I understand my actions were criminal and that I am fully responsible for my conduct.”

“Keller surrendered to authorities about a week after returning home to Colorado,” the report found.

Keller surrendered to authorities and had a successful swimming career, competing in multiple Olympics and winning several medals.

“Keller competed in the 2000, 2004 and 2008 Olympics. He won two gold medals and a silver in the 4×200-meter freestyle relay and two individual bronze medals in the 400 free,” the report added.

At the 2004 Olympics in Athens, Keller swam alongside Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte.
