January 13 According to the Daily Mail on the 12th, an American swimming Olympic champion who once partnered with “Flying Fish” Phelps appeared in the scene of the congressional riots.
His tall figure and eye-catching Olympic team uniform make everyone recognize him at a glance.
According to the report, this person’s name is Clyte Keller, who is 38 years old. In a live video of the congressional riots, Keller, who is nearly 2 meters tall and wears a national team uniform, is very prominent.
He stands in the crowd and is squeezed back and forth, but there is no obvious violence.
Because of his easy-to-recognize personal characteristics and clothing, at least a dozen swimmers recognized Keller in videos and screenshots. It is understood that Keller has represented the United States in the 2000, 2004 and 2008 Olympic Games as a swimmer.
He has won two bronze medals, one silver medal and two gold medals, set two records, and has also been a teammate of the relay race of the famous swimming player Phelps.
According to the report, Keller, who retired, is now working as a real estate agent. When Reuters called Keller’s company, the other party said that he “does not comment” and hung up the phone.
The New York Times pointed out that Keller has deleted his social media account, and he has previously published a series of pro-Trump content.
At present, the riots in Congress have killed 5 people and arrested 20 people on federal charges.
Investigators have filed more than 170 people to investigate possible crimes committed during the riots.
The FBI is tracking financial flows and travel, communication records, etc., and is also following up on video and photo records on the day of public reports and riots.
