Better yet, Ledecky!

So the 9 year old, who loves to wear soccer jerseys with the names and numbers of his heroes (Ronaldo, Neymar) said this morning he wanted a Team USA Olympics swim cap that said Phelps on it. “Or better yet, Ledecky!” he added. Definitely Ledecky, he said later, because she wins by larger amounts.

Do swimmers do that? Are such things available?

As it turns out, the answers are: No, and yes. Swimmers don’t typically sport swim caps with names other than their own.

The Dude is undeterred: He still wants to wear the swim caps of his heroes.

Better yet, Ledecky!
