After winning her second and third gold medals on Tuesday, the 19-year-old is going to be signing a lot of autographs at the Rio games.

But ten years ago, it was Ledecky who was asking for Phelps' autograph as a mere 9-year-old superfan!

Wow! Things have really come full lap circle for these legendary athletes!

But Phelps wasn't the only gold medalist Ledecky had the privilege of meeting in her adolescent years — another throwback pic reveals the swimmer also met none other than Michael Jordan:

Okay, so for all those aspiring Olympians out there, just take a picture with Katie and hope that it pays off the same way for you!
