Olympic swimming champion Klete Keller has been charged according to consistent US media reports for his involvement in the scandalous scenes in Washington.
According to the arrest warrant, the Federal Police FBI regards it as proven that the five-time Olympic medalist was one of the numerous people who broke into the US parliament last week and defied instructions from the police. The FBI relies on video recordings, according to the document released on Wednesday.
The 38-year-old Keller won Olympic gold in 2004 with Michael Phelps, Ryan Lochte and Peter Vanderkaay in the 800-meter crawl relay and was also part of the winning team in 2008, but was not used in the final. In addition, he won one silver and two bronze medals at the Olympic Games.
