In addition to the two times during his collegiate career, Keller, Keller was named to the United States Swimming “All-Star Team” four more times after going professional . Towards the end of his swimming career, Keller was reported to train for five hours every day six days per week. “The circumstances around this incident are unacceptable, and we expect everyone on our platform to conduct themselves in a professional manner,” read the statement. “We have worked closely with the dog’s owner to restore his trust in Wag! and we sincerely appreciate his understanding.” Depending on the outcome of his case, for these charges alone, Keller could face up to 15.5 years in prison. Keller surrendered himself to federal authorities the following day.

To be fair, again, we can call the number, say, 2,000 protestors, since how to cin with spaces c++ articles refer to “thousands” Probably, there were more.

He also found an open bottle of lubricant and a camcorder on the table in his Colorado Springs home. During the 4×200-meter freestyle relay at the Athens Summer Olympics in 2004, Keller held off a charging Ian Thorpe in the anchor leg to win the race by 0.13 seconds. This was the first time Australia had been beaten in the event in over seven years.

Yesterday, the 39-year-old, who won medals at the 2000, 2004, and 2008 Summer Olympics, pleaded guilty to obstructing an official proceeding, which was one of the seven charges against him relation to the insurrection. Eli Bremer, who competed for the US in the modern pentathlon in Beijing, knows Keller but has not spoken with his fellow Colorado Springs resident since the incident. “I don’t want to say that the history that Klete’s been quite open about and the struggles he’s had led into what happened in Washington DC because I don’t know,” he said. He finished fourth behind Thorpe, Pieter van den Hoogenband and Michael Phelps but ahead of Grant Hackett in the 200m freestyle in Athens, an event dubbed the “race of the century”. He also won bronze medals in the individual 400m freestyle in the 2000 and 2004 Games and a silver in the 4x200m freestyle relay in Sydney.

He would squeeze his 6ft 6in frame into the car and try to grab some sleep in Walmart parking lots.

In 2021, when SwimSwam contacted them for their January 11 story reporting Keller’s involvement in the storming of the Capitol, Hoff & Leigh confirmed that Keller was still an employee of the firm. The SwimSwam reporter that broke the story commented in their article that the firm “seemed unaware of the Capitol video or Keller’s possible involvement” in the storming of the Capitol. Later that day, the firm erased all mentions of Keller from its website. On January 12, 2021, Hoff & Leigh released a statement saying that Keller no longer worked for the company, having resigned, and that they did not condone his actions. Keller returned to work with Hoff & Leigh in May 2021 according to a January 2022 SwimSwam report.
