The Golden Goggles are always one of the best nights in the swimming world each year, but the USA Swimming Foundation really out-did itself Sunday night.

Attendees dined on a gourmet dinner, watched multiple performances from The Second City, and got a surprise visit from Kobe Bryant as he presented Katie Ledecky with her Female Athlete of the Year award (Along with Michael Phelps — that’s 30 Olympic golds on stage at once!).

The energy was high and the athletes were loving it. It’s not often we get to see USA Swimming’s finest out of their suits and caps, or sweats and messy buns, but the athletes stepped up to the occasion.

Could we get a red carpet photo album of all of the outfits from the night? I love to see swimmers looking fancy!

I’m interested to see how LA 2024 preps with Kobe and Phelps as ambassadors – 2 HUGE ambassadors who won’t be competing (people forget Kobe speaks a number of languages + was big with the foreign press and is a major draw in international markets).

Not to mention, they are backed by competing companies – Nike/UA

True Sweetser is a natural. I could see him as a sports anchor one day. ?
