Two-time Olympic gold medalist swimmer Klete Keller is seen inside the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021 (via FBI court filings).

A champion swimmer who raided the U.S. Capitol building on Jan. 6 while wearing a jacket bearing an Olympics patch and the letters “USA” will not be spending time behind bars.

Klete Keller, 41, of Colorado Springs, Colorado, was sentenced to probation on Friday. The two-time gold medalist was seen inside the Capitol building along with thousands of other Donald Trump supporters angry over Joe Biden’s win in the 2020 presidential election. Although his time in the Capitol was largely absent of physical violence — he was seen taking pictures with his cellphones and admitted to joining in obscene chants against top Democrats Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer — he did admit to “shaking law enforcement officers off” as they tried to remove him and others from the Capitol Rotunda, according to court filings.
