Numerous American swimmers and coaches, including Michael Phelps, Katie Ledecky, Simone Manuel, Anthony Ervin and 7 other members of the U.S. Olympic swim team that collectively won 33 medals, arrived back in the U.S. early this morning on a United Airlines flight from Rio to Houston. Shortly upon arrival at 5:15 a.m., the plane was sprayed down by firetrucks in celebration of the athletes on board.
Immediately afterwards, Houston-native Simone Manuel was recognized outside of the international arrivals area for her spectacular Olympic Games in which she won two gold and two silver medals.
