An Olympic swimming champion was apparently also involved in the storming of the US Capitol in Washington.
Video recordings of the attack by militant supporters of the still-President Donald Trump suggest that the American Klete Keller was part of the angry mob.
The 38-year-old won the gold medal in the 4×200 m freestyle relay with the record Olympic champion Michael Phelps in 2004 and 2008, and he also took bronze in the 400 m in 2000 and 2004.
Several US media reported on Tuesday that Keller was identified on the video footage.
You can see a tall man who is wearing a US Olympic team tracksuit and is very similar to the swimmer.
It is not clear from the picture whether he was involved in violence.
Last Wednesday, angry supporters of the elected Trump stormed the Capitol in the US capital, five people were killed in the riots.
