Gold medal Olympian Klete Keller has been identified in footage from the riots on the U.S. Capitol last week.
The 38-year-old competed in the 2000, 2004, and 2008 Olympic Games. Keller earned five medals overall, including gold medals in the 2004 and 2008 Summer Games.
Video footage from the Capitol riots was shared by journalist Julio Rosas, showing Keller wearing a Team USA jacket and standing with a group of rioters shoving police officers who were trying to block them from going further into the Capitol. Keller, who is 6'6", was identified by several people who reported him to federal law enforcement. He has since deleted all his social media accounts, which reportedly featured a stream of support for Donald Trump.
Keller was working as a real estate agent with Hoff & Leigh in Colorado, until Tuesday (January 12) when he resigned. The company released a statement, which reads, "Hoff & Leigh supports the right of free speech and lawful protest but we cannot condone actions that violate the rule of law."
