Did Leonardo DiCaprio just win a medal at the Olympics??
Leonardo DiCaprio Brady Ellison won a silver medal for Team USA in archery on August 6. Yep, at first glance, Ellison could be mistaken for none other than Leonardo DiCaprio, and Twitter definitely noticed:

The two men do have a few things in common.
Ellison has spent time near L.A., when he lived in Chula Vista, CA, near San Diego. Of course, DiCaprio probably spends a lot of time in L.A.

They’ve both won “medals”—DiCaprio took home the gold (in Oscar form) and Ellison took home the silver.

“I’m excited, I’m happy,” Ellison said. “After London, I was pissed off. We didn’t shoot the best we could and we lost the gold medal there. We got out there and did our job and won the silver tonight.”
And if you didn’t know better, you’d think this were DiCaprio.
I just got this in the mail. A one of a kind Wheaties box that the company sent to me as recognition of all my achievements and what's to come. There letter made me tear up a little bit. Thanks for this @wheatiescereal and everyone who has gotten me here. @hoyttargetarchery @eastonarchery @truball_axcel my family and fans. @teamusa #roadtorio
