Katie Ledecky Shows Off Fancy Footwork on Ellen
Olympic swimmer Katie Ledecky stopped by Ellen today and proved she might have a future in soccer!
The 19-year-old brought home 5 medals at the 2016 Rio Olympics including 4 gold and they all hung on her neck as she sat down with Ellen. Katie talked about going off to college and being compared to swimmers like Michael Phelps. She also brought Ellen her own swimming caps! After the interview, Katie was joined by American Ninja Warrior favorite Grant McCartney for a new game called Foot Flickers.
Foot Flickers has the contestants kick velcro balls at a huge dart board and basically aim for the bullseye. Katie and Grant switched off turns and each one got closer and closer until Katie’s final shot she nailed that bullseye. If she ever decides to stop swimming, she can definitely pick up soccer as a backup!
