Olympic Gold Medalist Katie Ledecky At The Caps Game

DC Sports Nexus ---- Sunday, March 17, 2013

On Sunday evening before the Washington Capitals game, the team presented 800 meter freestyle swimming gold medalist Katie Ledecky with a Ledecky Caps jersey.  Katie won the gold in London during the 2012 Summer Olympics as a 15 year old and was celebrating her 16th birthday at the Caps vs Sabres matchup.

Rod Langway was on hand to present the Bethesda Maryland medalist with her sweater.  Ladeky spoke to Smokin' Al Kokin during the second intermission, her gold medal draped around her neck.  The jersey name and number were both Gold to match her medal.

The Caps played a video tribute to Ledecky on the scoreboard which roused the Verizon Center crowd to give her a standing ovation.  Katie responded:

"The crowd's reaction meant a lot to me, it was a lot of fun"

Katie said she has been going to Caps games since she was 2 years old, that Adam Oates was her favorite player, and that Adam Oates loves Starbucks.  Ladecky's also talked about how her uncle was at one point part of the ownership group of the Caps.

"Let's Go Caps!"

California is the largest state in the union and the most important prize for enterprising sportsbook websites. There is trigger for hope, although, as two initiatives on the November 2022 ballot hope to legalize sports activities bet365 betting in California in one form or another. Alaska doesn't allow its residents to bet on sports activities in either retail or on-line settings. Although the Last Frontier has an active sports activities betting bill on its legislative docket, there doesn't look like any groundswell of assist behind it. The final main push for sports activities betting came in 2020, when Gov. Mike Dunleavy publicly advocated to permit the practice.
