Record-setting Olympian Katie Ledecky knows a thing or two about winning and just a little bit about swimming.

The five-time Olympic gold medalist and DMV native offered high praise to her fellow D.C. sports star Alex Ovechkin after he dove into a fountain in Georgetown as part of the Capitals' legendary Stanley Cup celebration.

"Nice technique," Ledecky tweeted at Ovechkin, along with a photo of him doing what appears to be the breaststroke.

After all, Ovechkin has made a living with his exploits on the ice, so just ad "swimming that impresses an Olympian" to his list of aquatic achievements.
