Two of Team USA's Olympic swimmers, Maya DiRado and Conor Dwyer, rang the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange on Tuesday, as Wall Street celebrated their medal wins in Rio. DiRado won four medals at the games, and Dwyer, a gold medalist from the London 2012 Olympics, earned two additional medals in Rio. DiRado says Rio was her first and last Olympics and she will soon begin a corporate job at McKinsey.  Dwyer is set on competing in the Tokyo Olympics and will soon begin training for that. The Olympians talked about the support they received from fans throughout the competition, and both believe fans will remember the successes of the American swimmers over the controversy around teammate Ryan Lochte.
