On July 1, 2021, Keldon Johnson was one of 17 players named to the USA Select Team. Players of the Select Team were responsible for training with the National Team to prepare them for the Olympics. What started as a role to help prepare Team USA would soon become a dream for Johnson. After a couple of spots opened up on the roster of the National Team, there was no hesitation to add Johnson. His outstanding performance with the Select Team earned him a position to compete in Tokyo for the 2020 Olympics. Johnson had the opportunity to play in four of the Olympic Games. With Team USA’s 87-82 victory over France, Johnson was officially a Gold Medaled Olympian.
