Olympic gold medalists Michael Phelps and Katie Ledecky are the current front-runners for most adorable Olympics photo of 2016.

10 years ago, a then 9-year-old Ledecky met Phelps at an autograph signing, and posed smiling next to the record breaking Olympian while he signed her poster. Little did either of them know, a decade later Ledecky would go on to be an Olympic gold medalist in her own right, setting a new world record this year in Rio.

The pair, who both competed at the Rio Olympics (and both took home gold medals) recreated the photo ... only this time it was Ledecky doing the signing and Phelps as the adoring fan.

It even looks like they swapped that black jacket! Amazing.
