The storming of the US Capitol building occurred on January 6 during a rally of supporters of incumbent President Donald Trump who did not recognize the results of the November vote, which resulted in the victory of Democrat Joe Biden. The rallies led to clashes with the police.
Keller was a two-time Olympic champion as a member of the four x 200 meter freestyle relay. In the same discipline, the athlete won the world championship twice.
