By Reach for the Wall staff.

Montgomery County hosted a celebration last night at the Civic Building in Silver Spring to honor its 2016 Team USA Olympians.

Montgomery County Executive, Ike Leggett, recognized swimmers Katie Ledecky (Bethesda, Md / Stanford University / Stone Ridge) and Jack Conger (Rockville, Md / University of Texas at Austin / Our Lady of Good Counsel), kayaker Ashley Nee, and wrestler Helen Maroulis.  All but Maroulis attended the event.

Ledecky, of course, won 4 gold medals (200m, 400m & 800m free, 800 free relay) and 1 silver medal (400m free relay) in Rio.  Conger won a gold medal in the 800 free relay.

Here is some footage of the event.
